Ringling College of Art and Design Illustration Alumni
Sam Nagel graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration, and began her art career as a freelance artist, creating everything from traditional paintings, digital illustrations, to graphic design for commercial projects. However, traditional watercolor and oil painting has always been Sam's main focus and passion. Growing up and living in South Florida, in a town surrounded by the ocean and intricate waterways has influenced her work. Always enveloped by a bright and tropical locale, Sam's paintings often reflect a lush marine environment with vibrant, intense colors and a painting style that delivers a lively appeal.
