“There is nothing more exciting in life than seeing someone to paint, stopping me dead in my tracks and making think Oh man I have to paint them! City life, to everyday people in a grocery store or a model in magazine my heart pounds with inspiration and excitement from the onset of the idea until the final stroke on that 3D canvas. I paint what I know, but most importantly i paint on what I love and thats new people that strike my heart…” – Samantha Christianson
