Samantha was born in Atlanta and has lived all over the state of Georgia. She spent her first years in Toccoa and later moved to Savannah in the eighth grade. Since 2014, she has been a Habersham County resident.
Samantha graduated from Armstrong Atlantic University in Savannah with a degree in Fine Art. While there, she discovered printmaking and fell in love with it. Her favorite genre of printmaking is the linocut. “I carve images in linoleum and run ink across the surface, then press paper across the linoleum stamp and the image transfers.”
Outside of her artistic world, she enjoys reading, writing, hiking, camping and, most of all, running everywhere she goes.
