put up or shut up

In an earlier post i gave advice about writing an artist's bio. So here's mine.

Sam Thorp concentrates on creating provocative and sensual figures and portraits. The use of line and gesture as well as intense and evocative color combinations give the work a certain vibrational energy.

Sam was inspired to draw by science fiction covers and comic books; took lessons from local legend Terri Perpich at the age of nine and began exhibiting in shows at the age of sixteen. Sam was accepted into the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts at Bucknell University and then attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania as a Fine Art Education major.

Sam was recently crowned the Art of Battle Champion in the Pittsburgh area.
The studio is located in Pittsburgh, where Sam as exhibited in many fine galleries; including shows at the Warhol Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, and Most Wanted Gallery. Sam has also shown in New York City , Los Angeles, & Detroit’s cPOP Gallery; as well as internationally on the Island of Lesvos, Norway and in London (Saatchi) and Leeds, UK. Her artwork has been bought and collected across the United States, UK, France, Australia, and the Netherlands.
