Hi hi! I am Samantha, a self taught watercolor and mixed media artist behind Samantha Tang Studios. I grew up in Canada but moved to the other side of the world for love. I happily married my nerdy Dutch boy and have been living in the Netherlands since 2015.
My second biggest leap of faith was to quit my job and start my own creative business on my birthday in 2021! The first being my heart-lead decision to move to the Netherlands, only after meeting my husband 6 months prior. Wowwwie, talk about YOLO, I must have been in love or something.
MY CREATIVE JOURNEY
It all started with a feeling, the feeling of freedom. For the longest time I was waiting for someone to give me permission to be free to do what I want.
I have been living in fear for most of my life without even acknowledging it. Fear of being judged, fear of not becoming successful and fear of just failing. So I stayed in my comfort zone and did the 9 to 5 like a responsible human.
BUT here's the magic guys... once I made the decision to do things for me, to change my mindset to gratitude and abundance, something clicked!
I felt the release, the joy, the peace. I felt so free and closer to myself then I had even been since I was a child.
I will continue to enjoy my creative process because my creativity is totally worth investing in and it is such an honour to be able to share it with you all.
FUN STUFF ABOUT ME!
Did you know that I took up figure skating again as an adult, yes I threw shame out the door and competed in skating competitions with kids younger than half my age.
I am deathly afraid of heights but I continue to go bouldering. It's seriously as much of a mental strength training as it is a physical one.
I've got a thing about simplifying and tidying up, and I definitely follow the Marie Kondo style of folding all my clothes.
I was also at the Vredenburg Market Utrecht in October this year and I was happy to see that there was a lot of interest in my products and art :) Grateful I got to talk to a lot of friendly people that day.
I will also be at the Neude Utrecht in December if you wanna check out my stuff, such as the calendars and of course the greeting cards.
Thanks for checking this page out and hope to meet you in real life!
