Sammy.B “Abstract Artist” has always had a love of painting, art and crafts. In fact, a first memory is as a two-year-old spilling a tub of green paint.

Since that time, Sammy.B “Abstract Artist” also been diagnosed with chronic depression, PTSD, OCD, moderate Asperger's syndrome, anxiety and chronic fibromyalgia auto immune disorder.
Since Sammy.B “Abstract Artist” doesn't feel anything emotionally, happiness is through abstract painting, art and crafts - a space where they can express feelings and emotions through artwork.

Sammy.B “Abstract Artist” has never entered an art exhibition before and is very excited to share paintings with the world for the first time.
A firm believer that there’s ability in disability, Sammy.B “Abstract Artist”'s paintings, art and crafts are unique.
"Nineteen bright rainbow colours swirled and then I used my secret self-taught technique to make a kaleidoscope pattern. My inspiration came from my love of bright happy colours and unique patterns. In painting, I love finding hidden patterns inside patterns."
