Originally from the Kapiti Coast, Sam works from her studio in Marton NZ. Her art practice spans over 10 years and works are now primarily stylised or imagined landscapes in oils. Sam also works with fibre, paper mache and illustration. She has a background in graphics and design with the illustration work being a natural progression from that time. She started painting again back in 2009 while based in Napier, Hawke’s Bay.
