October 2022 2-D Featured Artist Sam Wilson
Sam Wilson is an illustrator, designer and middle school art teacher based in Naples. Growing up in Indonesia, he was influenced by the vibrant tropical colors and patterns of Indonesian art and nature which are featured in his work.
Sam has written and illustrated three children’s books: Swamp Shop tells the story of a printing shop overrun with Floridian wildlife. I Wish is the story of a jellyfish searching for her identity, and True Colors is the story of a chameleon learning to feel comfortable in his own skin. He is currently working on his fourth illustrated book, Sunda Singer.
He sells his original artwork, paints skateboard decks, designs logos, and provides solutions for the visual communication needs of his clients both locally and around the United States. Follow him on IG @illustratededitz and explore and purchase art on his website at www.samwilsonart.com
