About the Artist
Samantha Reynolds is a Long Beach based artist. Drawing from memories, dreams, her work looks for magic in the ordinary. An abundance of various items and textures weave themselves into her work creating mixed media paintings, collages and fiber works. Samantha graduated from California State University Long Beach with a BFA in Drawing and Painting in 2018. She has since worked as a scenic painter and teaches private art lessons.
My work reconstructs fragmented, fading memories and captures moments of longing through a combination of paint, fabric, collage, glass and other found objects. Whether it’s a vague memory, a fleeting moment or feeling of yearning, my crows nest of materials integrated into my work offer a tactile experience grounded in a sense of unplaceable familiarity.
