Samantha was born in Ascot, England in 1983. Growing up, she shared a passion for art with her father and was surround by his artworks which adorned the walls of the family home.
Art was always a favourite pastime and a strong part of her education. In 2004, Samantha graduated with honours in a Fine Art degree from Bath Spa University.
Upon graduation she began a career in sales, which lead her to a successful role in IBM. She then started a family and devoted her time to being a full-time mum to her children in a little village in Berkshire. Despite having her hands full, she still made time for art - taking on commission works, painting and drawing pets and children for her clients.
It wasn’t until the family moved to Singapore that Samantha was able to fully embrace her a career in art. In 2019, she was signed to her first gallery.
Samantha draws inspiration from her surroundings. Living in the affectionately dubbed “Garden City”, her work is her own abstract take on the buildings and the lush, tropical greenery of Singapore. Using a combination of gestural, impulsive movements, layering and detailed work, Samantha has a style that is all her own.
Samantha has participated in a number of art fairs and exhibitions across Asia and her works can be found in many private collections across the region.
