Hello, I’m Samantha. I work primarily in watercolor with digital embellishments to create illustrations of objects.

I have worn many different hats, in terms of employment, throughout my life and though they haven’t always been art-related they have given me a lot of experience in the practical parts of the illustration job. Being reliable and communicating effectively is important to me, as are doing the job that is expected of me.

The illustrations I make focus on the objects that we use or used in the past and the stuff that the characters we create, use. What this ‘stuff’ is, how it’s been treated, if it’s old or new says a lot about the one who owns it. It is another way to show the essence of the character or person.

When I’m not working I have personal projects that I’m developing that have me trying out my writing skills and illustrations of places or environments

I live in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada with my boyfriend and cats.
