The Uproar is a representation of a burst of energy. It tells the story of a powerful wave coming alive, having a mind of its own, in the impending darkness. This painting initially started as a way for me to release the anger and frustration that I was dealing with in my life. We all face experiences in which we feel like we have been mistreated or weren't given the opportunity that we deserved. This experience to me was best expressed through a powerful, electrifying wave. During that time, it made the most sense to express those feelings by placing the brush on my canvas and working with colors that I never bothered to work with before. To experiment with movements and techniques that allowed this wave to come alive.
This painting defines the first time I decided to stop holding back in my art, which ended up being a turning point in the way I paint. Although we sometimes face frustrating experiences where we have no control, it is essential to know how to deal with them in a healthy way, through journaling, painting, meditating, or traveling. There is so much in life we cannot control, but how we react and handle those situations defines our character and how we are going to shape our future. Let's use these experiences as a way to learn and empower ourselves.

"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.
