Samantha Shumaker is best known for her meticulously structured artwork that encompasses elements of the surreal and the classical. The central subject that encapsulates the vast majority of Shumaker’s work is the female form and their relationship to animals, folklore, historical figures and environments.

Shumaker is self taught and enjoys research and experimentation in all facets of creative expression. Shumaker has exhibited throughout the Orlando area and has worked with Orlando Weekly, Galleria Portofino at Universal Studios and various other local art venues.

When Samantha Shumaker is not painting in her Greater Orlando studio, she can be found wandering in nearby forests or relaxing with a once stray cat Luna and a Corgi/Shih Tzu mix named Minnie.
