Samantha Wolov (b. 1984) began her art career at the age of sixteen months when her mother would line the shower walls with paper and allow her to finger-paint murals in the bathtub. After a brief and very unsuccessful stint as an oboe player in elementary school, Wolov, at the suggestion of her father (himself an amateur photographer), and the encouragement of her mother, decided to move towards visual arts. Wolov is a self-taught photographer, but received her B.A. in Art History from American University in 2005.
She has been featured in several gallery exhibitions around the country, published by FantasticsMag, Glass Magazine, and San Francisco Magazine, among others, and hopes to take photos as long as she possibly can, barring blindness or loss of her hands, which probably wouldn’t stop her anyway.
She currently lives in Berkeley, California. She is portable.
