Gloria Sampson's "Vintage Trucks in Sedona"

“Vintage Trucks in Sedona” by Gloria Sampson, Columbus Branch (Georgia)
Watercolor, 18.5 x 28.25 


Gloria Sampson’s goal is to paint every day. She works mainly in watercolor, pen, and ink.

A resident of Columbus, Georgia, Sampson divides her time between there and Walnut Creek, California. She earned a bachelor’s of fine arts degree with a major in interior design from the California College of Arts (and Crafts) in Oakland. As an interior designer in the Bay Area for many years, she demonstrated her love of its Victorian architecture by portraying it in pen, ink, and watercolor.

Sampson’s fascination with travel to study art and culture has resulted in more than 35 sketch books from around the world. Three of these books have been published.

In 2015, she donated 100 original paintings to the Columbus State University Library Archives from her book, “Historic Churches and Temples of Georgia, a Book of Watercolors and Drawings,” published by Mercer University Press. She was the featured artist in the Sept/Oct 2018 issue of Southwest Georgia Living magazine.
