Welcome to SammieJustesen

Welcome to Sammie Justesen's artwork shop! I create paintings in pastel and acrylic fluid art. After careers in critical care nursing and publishing, I returned to my first love: ART. I've shipped artwork around the United States, won awards, and am president of a local art association, where I help promote the arts and organize monthly shows. On any given day you can find find me with paint-spattered clothing and chalk under my fingernails, mucking about in the studio. Two cats supervise my work and my loving husband tolerates the mess. I'm a country girl who loves painting from nature, yet I also love the organic, unpredictable, and abstract designs of fluid acrylics. Please feel free to contact me -- I'd love to hear from you!
