Samantha Thomas, contemporary artist, painter, surfer - After moving to Venice this spring artist Samantha Thomas is up every day at 6 am to begin her daily training. After a good surf she is off to her studio in downtown Los Angeles to start making work.  The natural beauty gave up an athletic scholarship to pursue the arts and hasnít looked back since.  Beginning her practice with abstract painting and now transitioning into conceptual art, her work is popping up in influential group shows and on collectors walls. - LIPSTiCK TrACeZ
