Scars, Portraits and Beyond

"My scars are my story and I am proud of them. I embrace the curious stares of strangers. Most of all, I hope they stare at my art and see that I am following my dreams."

It was in a hospital room as a child where Samantha began to create art. At nine months old, Samantha survived bacterial meningitis. The physical impact of the disease is apparent as her skin is scarred; she had fingers, toes a

nd half of her right foot amputated. She spent much of her youth enduring reconstructive surgeries. As Samantha continued having surgeries, she also continued studying art. Although she has missing fingers she continued to pursue an art career by attending the Columbus Collage of Art and Design, where she majored in Fine Arts and studied painting.

Today, Samantha is a successful working artist also known as “ PainterSam”. Her artwork has received national media attention. Samantha’s story and art were featured on TLC's NYInk, she has interviewed on NBC, ABC and Fox and she’s also appeared in various printed publications. Samantha was awarded Columbus Parents Magazine’s “Mom of the Year” for her series Butterfly Portraits, art that is dedicated families that have lost a child. She began painting the series after losing their newborn son.

Scars, Portraits and Beyond is the first time Samantha is exhibited her art as a collection.The collection includes memorial portraits of famous people, cityscapes and other pieces that reflect Samantha’s triumph over a her physical challenges and tragedies.
