Hi, my name is Samson (aka Sam), and welcome to my site!!!
I am an image creator, using whatever medium available to achieve the desire end result. I have worked with oil paints, watercolors and ink. I also make masks evoking images from the spirit world.
I was born in Taiwan, and grew up in New York City. I now live and work in the Tampa Bay region. From a Western point of view, I would be considered a "self-taught" or "outsider" artist because I did not attend art school for my training. Instead, I studied computer engineering and had a fruitful career in the field of Intellectual Property working with many creative individuals such as inventors and programmers.
Therefore, the creative arts have always been a big part of my life. Throughout different stages of my life, I stuck to my commitment to continue drawing, painting and creating art regardless of the demands of my day-to-day job. I carried a sketch book with me at all times, and continue to do so today. I taught myself both Eastern and Western art history, and studied techniques from library books as well as attending exhibitions at galleries and museums where ever I can. Staying curious, I continue to explore and investigate the many different facets of the changing art world including the digital realm.
For me, the shear act of creating, whether it be a piece of art or a nice meal for loved ones, brings tremendous peace and joy to my existence. Therefore, it is my hope that my art, my creative energy and my life’s experiences can be a force for good and help uplift humanity's well being.
