"To celebrate and connect to the Utah landscape, Samantha uses the area's unique red dirt, local sawdust, and salt from the Great Salt Lake to add texture and interest to her paintings.
Although her pieces may not be local landmarks as their subjects, they certainly honor physical location and can be powerful markers of place. Samantha jokes that she might not be painting the mountain, but she is painting with the mountain." Danielle Vigueria, Western Home Journal Summer/Fall 2021
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
