Hi! My name is Samson Huang (aka Sam), and thank you for checking out my stores filled with my paintings and other artistic creations.  I am an artist working in the Tampa Bay area.  My story of following my love of art is one of perseverance and commitment.

 

My life was drastically altered at the age of 9 when my family immigrated from Taiwan to the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the early 1970s.  Thrust into a new environment and being illiterate of the English language, I quickly developed my observational skills along with the skills of depicting images in order to cope with the shock of a new culture.  As my English improved, New York City became my playground offering a vast diversity of people and cultures.  Every facet of my experiences in NYC fascinated me which helped developed my strong affinity for the arts. 

 

I dove into the arts in school where my artwork caught the attention of my teachers and won competitions and awards.  Although my counselor encouraged me to apply to art schools,  I chose to study engineering, and later the law, to ease the concerns of my working class immigrant parents.  Pursuing a career as an artist in a struggling immigrant family was never an option.  Nevertheless, I never abandoned my love for the arts. Throughout different stages of my life, I continued to draw, paint and create art. With patience, some planning and the invisible hand of life's unexpected twists and turns, I have been practicing art full-time since 2016.  Art is my life now.   Creating great and interesting art as a force for good, and sharing them with the world is the goal.  Be a part of my dream and buy a product from my stores, or send me a message.  I love to hear from you.

Success! Message received.
