Sam’s passion for art comes through in the messages he conveys & the emotions evoked by his work. He enjoys the journey painting takes him on. The biggest reward of this journey is the reaction of his clients when they see the final result of what he has created for them. Creations that include everything from a beautiful mural in a toddler’s bedroom to the wall of a ten story building. In addition to large outdoor murals & residential wall murals, Sam's work also includes commercial murals, window painting & signs, original paintings on any size canvas, and prints. Sam’s largest work to date is Great America 1, A Celebration of American Heroes, which was painted over a one-month period onto the back of the Flagship Motel. This work was painted as a dedication to honor the men and women who fight to keep America safe. If you live in Hampton Roads, there is a great possibility you have seen some of Sam's other works:
-The entrance at De Paul Hospital in Norfolk.
-The sign for the Virginia Zoological Park in Norfolk.
-The sushi bar at Mahi Mah’s Restaurant in Virginia Beach.
-Fire & Vine restaurant also in Virginia Beach.
-Juice Box Surf at the Oceanfront.
-The Virginia Air & Space Center in Hampton.
-The Battle of Great Bridge tribute on Battlefield Blvd in Chesapeake.
The video compilation below shows a few of the examples of Sam’s beautiful work throughout the area. Sam has also done work on US Navy Ships and for Oceana-based air squadrons. His murals can come in many shapes & sizes, but the impact is always great.
"The best thing about any type of painting that I do is the way my work effects people’s lives & allows me to share my art and expression. That’s a great feeling." Wall murals are a wonderful addition to doctors’ offices, salons, restaurants, hotels, non-profit organizations, corporate lobbies, and just about any other wall you can imagine. They can set a mood, enhance an atmosphere, and create a sense of escape.
