Sam’s many years of holistic training and doing body work has made him comfortable with anatomy which has been a big asset in working with clay. Seeing so many people unhappy with their perceived physical imperfections and defects has helped him to realize that there is no such thing as perfect, especially in ART. His mixed media work which may incorporate clay, bones, and steel reflects his never ending sense of humor as well as his darker, quirky side. Working for years in construction has provided him with the tools to conceptualize how different materials work and move together. Sam makes art that is not meant to just sit there and look pretty: it should be touched, often it moves, and should move you to smile or groan - it’s all good.
