Samantha Shumaker is best known for her meticulously constructed artwork that spans a variety of subjects and mediums. The central subject that encapsulates the vast majority of Shumaker’s work is the relationship between nature and the human experience. Representations of animals, folklore, historical figures and environments lend themselves as connections to what it means to be human.
Shumaker is self taught and enjoys research and experimentation in all facets of creative expression. Shumaker has exhibited throughout the Orlando area and has had work featured in Orlando Weekly and various local art venues.
When Samantha is not painting in her Greater Orlando studio, she can be found wandering in the forests nearby or relaxing with a once stray cat named Luna and a Corgi/Shih-Tzu mix named Minnie.
