Sam was highly artistic and derived much of her artistic energy from experimenting with different mediums. These included paint, pastels, ceramics, CAD, fabric, glass, metal, egg shells, double yolk eggs, and many repurposed items. She was driven to create and always sought unusual ways to express her creativity. Her art won acclaim and prizes in local and school shows and contests from junior high to college. Helping other aspiring artists to realize their dreams is the best tribute we can give her.
