Samantha Andrew is a Christchurch-based aspiring artist who currently attends Cashmere High School. She aims to participate in every art event possible as a way to spread messages of awareness and feelings which are complicated to understand.
“In my more recent works, I've been incorporating self-portraits of myself in a surreal style to give a stronger message about my personality and feelings. I want my art to communicate to viewers that even throughout struggles you'll still be you. Art was something I always stuck to no matter what was happening in my life. Now as a teenager I try and incorporate the things which keep me inspired and happy, especially now as I've been struggling heavily with my mental health.”
