Sally Samins is an abstract artist, strongly influenced by a childhood in Australia.
After studying graphic arts, she became a well known sports photographer, specializing in America’s Cup yachting. After developing her artistic eye through photography, she decided to follow her childhood dream of becoming a painter and has created a distinctive style that combines strong visual composition with rich color. She creates images that convey the inspirations she derives from her native Australia’s deserts, oceans and urban landscapes.
Samins' work has a strong visual impact while evoking feelings of comfort and familiarity, and continuing to reveal itself in its detail.
Samins lives in San Diego, California.
