“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.” ~John Lubbock (1834-1913)

The artist Sunshine Sam Studios painting at home


My name is Sam, and I'm a Canadian contemporary impressionistic painter.

I live in Northern Alberta, Canada, on our small acreage for most of the year, and winter away with my family to warm climates-usually to our second home-Mexico. 

Everyday I am struck by the beauty of nature, how it grounds us and constantly puts everything into perspective.

My work usually focuses on elements found in nature:

a moody sky, a budding flower, an animals' expression, the reflections on water, the decay and cracks in bone, the glow from a candle's flame.

A single lifetime isn't enough time for me to study and inspect even a small fraction of the incredible places, objects and feelings that we can find by simply going outside and being present. 

 Each piece I make is a study where I get to dissect and examine every part of the picture; I wouldn't wish to be doing anything else.
