Sam sat in on his first college art class at Kendall College of Art and Design with his mother before he was born. On his fathers side he is related to Vincent Van Gogh, so it could be said that his compulsion to create art is an unavoidable part of who he is. Sam studied fine art at Ball State University and learned the art of wood sculpture while apprenticing with master sculptor Leslie Scruggs. Abstract works from Sam can currently be viewed at Art Rapids! Sculpture Park in Elk Rapids Michigan, Michigan Legacy Art Park in Thompsonville Michigan, Art Trail in Tecumseh Michigan, Sculpture on Ford Road in Canton Michigan, City of Valparaiso Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit in Valparaiso Indiana, and Blandfold Nature Center School in Grand Rapids Michigan.
