Born 1987, Sydney, Australia.

Samantha has completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) and Master of Fine Art (Sculpture) at the National Art School, Sydney. Samantha takes interest in working with the concepts of time and space. Memories and moments are seized through an experiential approach with steel, using assembled curved and reclaimed elements. Her practise captures movement, leading the eye and body of the viewer around the work, allowing the work to reveal itself whilst provoking the imagination.

Samantha now lives and works from the Southern Highlands, NSW, creating work for group and solo shows. Her studio practise see’s an amalgamation of sculpture, drawing and more recently a collaborative practise with artist, Caroline McGregor, as White Field, creating site-specific and ephemeral installations.
