Underwater Painted Portraits by Samantha French


Brooklyn-based painter Samantha French has created a new series of large-scale underwater swimmers’ portraits. The oil paintings are inspired by the summers of her childhood spent swimming in northern Minnesota lakes, and are meant to exhibit the quiet tranquility of water and nature. You can pick up prints of her work in her online shop, and if you’re in Minnesota at the end of January, you can see her paintings in person at the Groveland Gallery in Minneapolis.
