Sam Kaplan

As a city-dweller Sam (they/them) is drawn to painting moments of nature, quiet, and possibilities of solitude. The old log cabin by some lake and wintery hikes through the snow. They are fortunate enough to farm-sit for rural friends; and many of these images are based upon travels and adventures in quiet places. Sam is a queer non-binary artist, who is an uninvited settler on the unceded homelands of the xwməθkwəyə̓ m (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl ̓ ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Peoples. Sam is a long ago art school drop-out and mess-maker, who loves the interweaves of paint, ink, embroidery, weaving, and clay. Outside of art- making, they are a lover of growing foods, hiking, camping, and animals.
