CREATIVE OF THE MONTH – March 2022
Samantha is a Somerset based artist and teacher, working in a wide variety of materials, very much drawn to the natural world for inspiration.
The beauty and diversity of the Southwest provides me with a rich variety of sources to stimulate creative responses. I am particularly drawn remarkable Jurassic coastline. I have always been drawn to the sea and take great enjoyment in being close to the water in all weathers.
In the summer months I enjoy the invigorating shock of being immersed into waves to the feel of salt spray stinging my face in winter, rejuvenating the physical, the mind and soul. I aim to capture elements of these experiences in my pieces, using a variety of mediums to create 3D properties, generating a sense of movement and energy to each coastal inspired work.
A local nature reserve is a place I spend much time walking and observing seasonal changes to the flora, fauna, wildlife, and changing light on the wetlands. Through exploring texture, mark making and colour, I hope to reflect a time, a place, emotion, or sensation to each work.
I am presently working on a large scale textural piece, which I hope to display at the Cove Gallery in Weymouth, where I have been fortunate enough to have sold work for a couple of years.
