Sam’s studio is wherever she sets her pack down for a break or for the night. Using oils and a pochade box she paints off the beaten path as an adventure artist, capturing landscapes only accessible on foot or via her beloved Jeep Wrangler.
The outdoors has always been Sam’s real home, even while sketching a pond and its placid ducks at the age of 5. She is an independently taught artist and worked as a concept illustrator in scenic theming projects for companies such as Disney, Third Street Promenade Santa Monica, and Bass Pro.
Now she’s taking a radical leap from the exacting requirements of concept illustration to the utter freedom of the landscape. With expressive brush- and knife-work she focuses on sharing her experience of the wild found in the deserts, mountains and rugged shorelines she explores.

Here’s where you can view my portfolio, read about my latest on-trail and artistic
adventures, purchase a print or a painting or say hello via Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or Snapchat. You can also find me on Yonder and on the GoWonder Snapchat team sharing what adventures lie in and around the Southern California area.
I’m someone who’s recovering from major depression, anxiety and PTSD. While I like to keep personal thoughts to myself and a few trusted people, I’m also not shy about discussing the journey of recovery. On my blog you’ll find some brutally honest descriptions of what it’s like to live, explore, and create with these illnesses. That’s not all you’ll find, though! I enjoy sharing photos and art and adventures and the occasional adorable puppy photo.
Thanks for visiting!
