Sam Ticknor is a visual artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2015.
Sam invents playful imagery via painting, drawing, and photography. Her primary medium is gouache paint, which she enjoys due to its unique material qualities: matte texture, water-solubility, and saturated pigment. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries and private collections throughout the United States.
Outside of the studio, Sam has developed award-winning projects for Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History and The Andy Warhol Museum. She also teaches animation and technology youth workshops at Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
Sam is involved in several New York-based artist communities including NYC Crit Club and Collective 131 - an online art gallery that features emerging female artists. She is a new member of Kunstraum artist community.
