My friend Sam has touched and inspired me in ways no other friend has in all my years on this earth. She’s just a little old lady who happens to be an amazingly creative person. She embodies the word artist. Her life is making art - for decade after decade. In two and three dimensions. She lives and breathes imagination. An artist HAS to make art - that’s Sam.
