About Me

Hey 👋 I’m Sammy, an artist with a never give up attitude and an insatiable appetite to create.

I was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and currently live in Boston, MA, where I balance a full-time digital marketing job with my full-time small business.

I learned to draw and paint at an early age with the help and encouragement of my grandmother, and took art classes throughout grade school. I’ve also taken art classes at the University of Cambridge, England, the University of Wisconsin, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and in private studios throughout Boston and New York.

My first love and go-to medium is acrylic paint, which I use to paint portraits of the people I admire. Growing up a musician (I can sing, play the piano, clarinet, and guitar!), my preference for painting portraits of the bands and musicians who inspire me is something that evolved on its own.

I also love experimenting with different mediums like alcohol inks, alcohol-based markers like Chartpak and Copic markers, and most recently, I’ve traded in my sketchbook for an iPad Pro, which I’ve been using to create digital illustrations in Procreate.
