I'm Sam, a rainbow-loving artist and mother of three wonderful kids and three "well-nourished" cats. My work includes children's book illustrations, portraiture, and whimsical landscapes.


Since graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2003, I have illustrated seven children's books and completed numerous fine art commissions. I've also authored two collections of silly stories for children, "Star-Bright Afterschool" and "Back to Star-Bright."

When I'm not at my easel, I can be found re-watching episodes of Seinfeld, enjoying stand-up comedy, and avoiding opportunities to go camping.

Thank you so much for visiting my site!
