Sam lives his life with a contagious joyfulness and appreciation for his environment.  His artwork is a very direct expression of that joy, and reflection of the world around him.  “What I love most about art is creating colors.  Colors are important to me, like for example blue feels sunshiny and huggable, like having my shades open on a bright sunny day.  When I make art it makes me feel so good, I hope my art makes other people feel so good.  I want to inspire people.”
