Samantha West is an Amazon born into the concrete jungle of New York City on New Years Day 1983. She is inspired by the curious combination of vintage nudes, birds, Fred Astaire movies, bus rides, mermaids (and their long mermaid hair), horses, and barefoot cooking.
Samantha’s work has been featured in “Nerve: The First Ten Years”, published by Chronicle Books, and holds a place in the permanent collection of WYNC’s Jerome L, Greene Space in New York City.
