After my Julienne Hsu post, Samantha French wrote in to share her own paintings. Samantha is currently living in New York, and graduated from MCAD just a few years ago. Her paintings gorgeous! And for those of us (sadly) can’t buy one of her originals, she has prints available for $64.95. Those are going on my Christmas wish-list for sure!
From her website:
Samantha French’s paintings and mixed media drawings reflect a connection to the past and her own memories of life in Minnesota. Her series focusing on bathers is her link to home and thecontinual search for the feeling of sun on your face, warm summer days at the lake. Shades of blue dominate her work as gestural figures in swimming attire represent memories of her past and a romanticized time far before hers with wool suits, dark eyeliner and bob haircuts.
