Samuel Smith is an award winning artist residing in Santa Barbara along California’s central coast.   He has shown his regional landscapes locally and nationally in numerous galleries and shows, including the 2016 national American Impressionist Society annual show with top artists from the US.    Sam’s art has been featured in Southwest Art magazine, Fibonacci Fine Art, and other art publications.    His style is uniquely described as a melding of early California impressionism with contemporary subjects.     He has captured the interest of regional and national audiences, after a host of regional awards in the Santa Barbara area the past 5 years, emerging into the collectors market.  On a personal level, Sam tells people that the “way to know life is to love many things” (quoting Vincent Van Gogh), and that is represented in the diversity of his work.
