Samantha Edmiston is a self taught abstract painter and sculptor, working in mixed media and clay. Sam has a raw approach to her work. In her process she is intuitively following what speaks to her in the moment. She is influenced by music, the beauty of nature, people, and other artists in her life. She intends to spark a dialogue that encourages people to stop, think, and step out of their comfort zone to decide for themselves the meaning behind what they see and what they imagine.
Sam grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania where there was very little culture. She was driven to escape this place as she knew there had to be so much more out there in the world. Samantha has happily landed in Asheville and now calls it home.
