Our Artists: SAM
SAM has been an artist for most of her life, however, she really found her artistic voice being involved with the art programs at the Gathering Place. Her line quality is lyrical like jazz music, and her palate includes primary and secondary unsaturated color, making her imagery bold and vibrant. SAM is forever experimenting with materials and finds new and original, (sometimes unconventional), items to incorporate into her art vision. Although her subject matter tends to be recognizable, she has an abstracted drawing style, and she uses a wide value scale juxtaposing luscious darks and light accents to create a successful dramatic affect. Mainly self-taught, SAM is a natural with her ability to speak to others through her skills, prolific imagery, and fearlessness.
