About the artist
Born in Queens, New York, Samah Kthar is a 26-year-old emerging self-taught artist now living in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Her art is best described as abstract expressionism whilst using acrylic on canvas. She defines painting as an out of body experience where her soul decides the colors, tools, and strokes based on the feelings. The end result is always unpredictable but she describes every creation as “imperfectly beautiful”. Art has allowed her to begin this spiritual journey of self-realization. It has also allowed her to have a better understanding and appreciation for life. She believes art saved her life. Her passion for art began when she was introduced to painting while on a trip to California. Knowing little about it, she insisted on continuing the pursuit for art once she arrived back home. Eager to create and give back to the world has given her a sense of purpose and has helped her to feel more connected within her self and others. Due to the tremendous growth over a short span of time, she hopes her artwork serves as an inspiration for others to find happiness from within.
