| Born in 1980 in Orange County, California, Devyn Samara discovered her natural talent at the age of six, when she won an art contest sponsored by a local art gallery. Her mother encouraged Devyn to express herself artistically from then on.
Throughout her school years, Devyn gravitated towards the arts, taking art classes, designing school yearbooks and concept sketches for dramatic productions. In her free time she studied animation through extra-curricular activities and private tutors. Having grown up in Orange County, Devyn spent many happy times at Disneyland. She has always been inspired by Disney art, classic animation, concept sketches, and the beautiful gardens of Disney parks. Much of this inspiration comes across in her drawings and paintings, many pieces (private and commissioned) having direct influence.
After her school career, Devyn became a commissioned artist, specializing in landscapes and portraiture in oils, charcoal, and watercolor. She is an award-winning graphic designer and has created advertisement design, logos, and designed websites for businesses and non-profit organizations.
Devyn, who is primarily self-taught, continues to push herself towards excellence in her artform. She works in many styles including realism, semi-realism, impressionism, abstract, and illustration. In the summer, she is also a private art tutor for children in her area. Today, Devyn continues to work from her home studio in Santa Barbara County, California and study the beautiful nature all around her.
