“[...] Out of the impossibility of finding those words, I speak in images. With nothing else to express the words from the depths.” ― C.G. Jung, The Red Book
I am Samantha Dowstra, a 28 year old artist from New Jersey. I work in the Mental Health field and hold a BA in Psychology, but first and foremost I am a creator. As far back as i can remember, creating art has been my favorite outlet for expression. As a Mental Health Professional who also struggles with mental illness, my creativity thrives when shedding light into the beauty in the chaos of emotions and the human condition. When creating I can be found using all types of mediums, my favorites being acrylic or oil paints, as well as mixed media, collage, and sculpture. I am constantly changing and evolving as an artist and I love experimenting with new materials.
