Welcome! My name is Samantha Letourneau a.k.a. Sam from The Art of Sam.
There are many reasons why I create art.
I can express my values and feelings. I value our earth, animals, and children. I value joy, expression, and honesty. Spreading kindness, care, laughter and understanding. Connecting. I believe spirituality, philosophy, and having a purpose brings meaning to our lives. I care about our environment, recycling and reusing, the kinds of food we put in our mouths, factory farming, justice, poverty, hunger, homelessness, child abuse, illness, I could go on and on. I appreciate the simple things in life. These are some of the things that influence my art and my being. My mind buzzes with ideas for making art when I am inspired by nature or anything else I come across that makes me...me. I can make something that can bring meaning for me and others. I like to make art from recycled, reused, or natural materials. I make art to inspire, teach, and learn.
