Artist Statement + Bio:
“It’s only in and through place – the places we love and leave and pass
through and want to go to – that we figure out who we are.”
– Yi-Fu Tuan, “Topophilia”
Samantha Eio is a self-taught landscape artist who works in acrylic and
watercolor paint. She enjoys the challenge of capturing the feeling of a place
through drawing and painting. She is inspired by the natural world –
forests, trails, the sky, the ocean, sunlight and shadows. Samantha is also
moved by the dichotomy of the fast-paced world we live in and the
struggle to find peace and stillness within. She works to portray this in
creating a sense of movement with her brushstrokes and lines, along with
a sense of calm through her choice of subject, paint colors and tones. Her
paintings feature meaningful locations from throughout New England, many
from right here in the MetroWest Area. She hopes her artwork makes you
want to get outdoors and explore.
Samantha is originally from Northern New Jersey. She holds a Bachelor
of Architecture degree from Syracuse University, and she draws on her
architectural background often for her artwork. She is a member of the
Natick Art Association, the Wellesley Society of Artists, the Dedham Art
Association and the Newton Art Association. Her work has been exhibited
locally. Her painting “Forward Rush” was recently selected to be part of the
permanent collection at PNC Bank at Dedham Legacy Place. And her piece,
“All of Us, Under the Same Deep Blue Sky”, was selected to be part of the
upcoming exhibit “From the Heart” at the Mosesian Center for the Arts.
Samantha resides in Natick with her family. She also enjoys trail running,
playing the piano and listening to way too many audiobooks.
