In Your Shadow - Samantha Buller
Samantha Buller currently lives in Petaluma, California with her husband and daughter. She received her BFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco and now paints full time in her home studio, and teaches workshops whenever possible. Originally from the Bay Area, her work reflects the beautiful light and modernism that is found in Northern California. Her work has been shown in the Hall of Justice in downtown San Francisco, in businesses and several galleries, as well as on the set of a prime time television show.
She studied a semester abroad in Italy, which has greatly influenced her love and passion for the arts. “Italy was full of rich, golden colors. The culture is truly inspiring for any type of artist and to have the opportunity to paint while standing amongst an Italian sunflower field, should be one experienced by all.”
Her love of color completely drives her work. She is inspired by the art of Wayne Thiebaud for his paint application, color, and composition, as well as the works of Raimonds Staprans for his layering techniques. She chooses to paint simplistic objects to create a clean, strong design, sharing interest with the negative space.
