Hailie Sam is a self-taught mixed media artist with a special connection to abstract artwork. Based in Dallas, Texas but originally from Kansas City, Kansas, Hailie Sam was raised and encouraged by her artistic mother. She began her journey as an artist after the loss of her grandparents in 2018 and 2020. Art became therapeutic by helping her navigate anxiety and grief. Her color palettes are nature-inspired. The transitions of colors, gestural marks, and flow of paints across the canvas help connect Hailie to her emotions and promote ideas of self-awareness and mindfulness. Her belief that nature is healing is how she began using elements in some of her work, such as introducing fire, air, and water to the paint and canvas. Each of the elements represents different energy and the many ways it impacts us.
Hailie Sam has a desire to help others heal through art and the meanings they experience when viewing her works. She soon will showcase her works with The Other Art Fair Dallas presented by Saatchi Arts in May 2022.
