About The Artist
Hey, I'm Samm, the artist! As an animal lover and an artist, I combine my two biggest passions to create a vibrant and whimsical style of art. Creating a fun spin-off of the actual likeness of a furry (or scaly, or feathery) friend with a paintbrush, I have developed my own style of painting, and enjoy working with acrylics on a variety of surfaces included repurposed materials. I care a lot about the planet and try to reuse whatever I can do keep items out of landfills, so you'll often see old fan blades and reclaimed wood in my art displays!
In addition to creating, I am passionate about fundraising for local animal organizations in our community. A portion of all my art proceeds are donated towards my fundraising efforts, which are charity paint your pet parties I call "Painting with a Pit". Some causes I am most passionate about include animal rescue, spay/neuter programs, wildlife conservation, protecting the FL springs, veganism, and advocating for pit bulls and bully breeds that get a bad rap. You'll often find these themes throughout my art too! In addition to being an artist full-time, I assist with monarch butterfly research seasonally throughout the year, teach painting classes, and volunteer with local animal organizations including my county shelter and different rescue groups.
I currently have my art displayed in a variety of shops, restaurants and galleries around Florida. I exhibit and sell my work at several art shows, festivals and markets in addition to selling online on Etsy. My specialty though, is commissioned artwork and custom pet portraits made to order.
