Samantha Hickman works in watermedia, often combining transparent watercolor with gouache, or acrylic paints. Her main interest and success is in portraying varying attitudinal and emotional aspects in portraits and figurative works.
She is currently working in a surrealistic style, combining non-objective abstraction with figures, both human and animal. Samantha has exhibited work in a number or regional and national juried competitions. Her work, "ODD DREAMS" won a third place award in a National Watercolor Society exhibition. Three of her pieces will be published in Watercolor Magic magazine in August, 2006. Samantha occasionally does commission work.
