Welcome! My name is Samantha, a.k.a. “Sam.” So now you have my official permission to call me Sam (so many people ask me if it’s ok to do that….so I thought I’d clear that up now).
I have four girls (9,10,16 & 20)…yeah…I know what you’re thinking. OMGosh…lot’s of drama in my house?! And the answer…yes there is, and we have two female cats and a male cat (he’s my surrogate son). Most importantly, I have my loving husband who continues to wrangle the herd to make all this a possibility.
I went back to college when my 2nd child was four. During that I had two more children, taking a semester off to have each of them, and managed to graduate (proudly with honors) with my BFA in Painting and Design from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2009.
Since then, I’ve been working on my paintings here and there (not as much as I would like) and focusing on website design and development. In between, I’ve done some world traveling to see some amazing artwork and places I had only seen in photos and books.
Then came podcasting and Artevaggio. Artevaggio is a website I created where artists can come together, network and promote their work. I opened a physical gallery in 2014 which had many shows until its closing in the summer of 2015. We learned SO much in that year about running a gallery and perhaps one day we will reopen in a new location.
The thing I miss the most is being around artists, seeing their work and hearing their stories. That is why I revived the podcast and began interviewing artists again. This time a focus on not only sharing their story but on their success stories as well. Here is a link to my podcast on Artevaggio.com.
Thanks SO much for stopping by and I hope you’ll drop me a message soon!
P.S. I’m also a big superhero fan….love the Cap.
