Born and raised in London, Ontario, Canada, Sam has built up an extensive art background with training from Beal Art, that included studios such as animation, ceramics, commercial art, drawing, painting, print making, sculpture and textiles.
After graduating from Beal Art, she completed Fanshawe College’s Advanced Graphic Design Program. Sam has been working in the industry ever since, as a Graphic Designer, Web Designer and part-time Instructor in the Advanced Graphic Design Program at Fanshawe College.
As an artist, Sam works in a wide range of mediums, including painting with acrylics and watercolours, drawing with graphite and ink, as well as chalk. You will find her paintings, drawings and chalk work in numerous private collections, as well as on display at various locations around London.
As an active artist in the local community, Sam participated from 2013-2016 in the Brush Off event at the Children’s Museum as well as for many years in the Annual Expressions in Chalk event.
The Brush Off was a fundraising event that required speed and skill to complete a painting in 30 minutes! All paintings were auctioned off to raise money for the Children’s Museum.
