Samantha is a Christian mother and artist aspiring to create art that pulls it's viewers to God in a compelling way, and prompts deep thought surrounding the divine and our connection to Him.
Through creating, Samantha has found her greatest form of therapy to anchor her during intense postpartum depression, and ongoing ADHD and anxiety. She is determined to stay immersed in creating for life.
Samantha creates primarily portraits and figures in oil paint. She is inspired by William Bougoureau, ancient stained glass cathedrals, and her children especially.

Samantha developed the following statement of faith as a guide for her professional artistic and written work, as well as the mission and goals of Sam Newton Studio.
We believe in God the Father, His Son – Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His birth to the virgin Mary, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His glorious return in power.
We believe the Bible to be God’s word as far as it is translated correctly.
We believe that all people on earth are God’s children, He loves us all, continues to speak to us, and desires each of us to choose to return to Him.
We believe in aspiring to also obtain those Christlike attributes: faith, love, patience, hope, honesty, charity, virtue, and humility.
We believe that all people sin and are lost without the continuous application of the Atoning power of Christ and cleansing of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
We believe God continues to provide each of us individualized and ample opportunities to grow, heal, learn, and follow Him.
We believe in the gift of personal revelation, vision, healing, and so forth.
We believe all people on earth will be resurrected, judged according to their own deeds, and given a suitable eternal home according to a merciful, and just judgement.
We believe all people may worship God as they choose, and that we ought to give respect to differing beliefs and practices.
We believe in uniting as Christians to seek after anything virtuous and Godly to defend and support one another in returning to our heavenly home with God.
