Catherine Samples


I have always had an active imagination with an interest in drawing, especially animals and fantasy subjects, from the time I was young. My parents fostered my art, and their love and support allowed me to explore and grow my interest into a passion. After High school, I worked with animals and took classes at Community College. It was here I discovered a particular love for drawing from life, and working in a Illustrative representational style. I found my calling and transferred to V C U school of the Arts. In 2015 I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree. Today, my lifelong love for nature and animals continue to be the focus and center of my subject matter. Although I work in a contemporary style, I gravitate towards and pull inspiration from Asian methodology in much of my work.
