The Release was inspired by the beautiful, powerful oceans in Montauk, NY. Montauk has always held a special place in my heart. It is the one place I have always been able to find clarity in my life. I felt so empowered by the waves and the energy in the air. We all face difficult situations in our lives, and we end up being stronger and wiser because of them. This painting represented letting go of the past and bringing the bright future that was ahead of me, where I could continue to learn and grow.
The Release was inspired by the beautiful, powerful oceans in Montauk, NY. Montauk has always held a special place in my heart. It is the one place I have always been able to find clarity in my life.There is something about this town, where you can easily melt into the sand without a worry in the world. Whenever I travel to Montauk, I am always inspired and excited by the sea-green oceans that take my breath away.
The Release represents overcoming the harsh and challenging situations that I was facing in my life in 2014. When I started to create this painting, I was overcoming living in a toxic household, with an unstable father who refused to leave, while my parents were in the middle of a divorce. At that time, I would try to take every opportunity to escape from my house so that I could find a piece of sanity. When I went to Montauk that summer, it was like a breath of fresh air, literally and figuratively. I was finally to breathe for the first time in months. I felt empowered by the waves and the energy in the air. We all face difficult situations in our lives, and we end up being stronger and wiser because of them. This painting represented letting go of the past and bringing the bright future that was ahead of me, where I could continue to learn and grow.

"Sammy's painting is the first thing I see each day when I walk into my home office. Every day it brings a sense of peace and wonder as I begin my day. Not only is Sammy's work amazing, she has an amazing heart and is a true creative. I look forward to collecting more of her work in the future."

"My husband and I moved into our new home and was inspired by Samantha's artwork. We wanted to fill our home with some of her paintings, and purchased an original (Morning Mist) and two of her prints (After, and Sacred Land).
We loved "Morning Mist" and it hangs over our fireplace. It creates a stark contrast with the function of our fireplace. Samantha's paintings embody so much energy, and provides the viewer with a glimpse into an etherial world where wonder exists. Her originals have a textural layer that provides an extra dimension into these heavenly landscapes.
My husband and I constantly find something new when looking at the paintings, and generates great conversations amongst our guests. They feel that it works really well within our home. The one thing I can say is that Samantha is such a reasonable and nice person. She loves what she does, and works really hard to make sure that she embodies her creative window into her paintings. We've made a personal visit to her studio, and was astounded by all of her active paintings, and the sheer scale of some of the paintings. She is such a beautiful person, and a delight to talk to. We highly recommend seeing the works in person, and definitely talk to Samantha, she has a really good sense in reading people and determining what works for them.

We commissioned a painting because we loved her work but wanted a specific size and colors. We absolutely love our painting! Every time we look at it, we see something new! It’s the perfect addition to our room!
