Samantha Carey is a local artist from Nolanville, Texas. Samantha’s interest in art began at a young age. She loved art projects and being creative. In the Air Force she worked as a data analyst, but would also take on creative projects when there was an opportunity, such as redesigning mission patches and coins. Samantha has an extensive background in the Information Technology field, and once thought she would like to go into engineering, but it always came back to art for her. Self-taught, digital art and photography became her specialty, because she could combine all her interests to make stunning graphics and photos. Samantha’s artwork started out as creating gifts for family and friends. She now wants to share her artwork with a larger audience to bring joy and smiles to even more people.
