So, who are you?
My name is Sam and I am an illustrator and graphic designer, currently based in the Philadelphia area. Drawing animals is my specialty! On my blog The Balance Artist, you will also meet my husky Koda, my boyfriend Coop, and various family and friends. We have a little bit of everything here, that’s how I roll.
Born and raised as a Jersey girl (and no, I do not talk like Snooki), I graduated from the University of Arizona. Miss the gorgeous desert and the vicinity to the West Coast, but MAN, nothing rivals Philly and New York food. I live near the best foodie cities in the nation, as far as I am concerned!
Why The Balance Artist?
For me, it is a very important thing to have a balance between health and indulgence. Both things make you feel really good, but too much of one and none of the other has the total opposite effect. As much as I love working out regularly, practicing yoga, taking my husky for long walks, veggies, and experimenting cooking healthy and yummy food in the kitchen, I also strive to indulge…a life without good beer, red wine, chocolate, and ice cream is my worst nightmare! I live for the beach, all things that glitter, dancing all night, and palm trees. It’s the little things in life!
Hope you stick around! Check back often for new artwork and designs, recipes, and tales of my crazy little life. Enjoy!
