Oil paintings that look like photography by Samantha French

Samantha French is a talented artist was born and raised in Nisswa, Minnesota who creates stunning underwater oil paintings. Samantha graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2005. Since that time she has exhibited her paintings throughout the United States of America, and her work is included in numerous private and public collections across the country. Samantha’s paintings are inspired by her intimate experience with “lake life”. In her paintings swimmers float, dive and push toward the water’s surface.

Samantha captures the bright sunlight glistening off of the top of the water and shining up from the ground, and her subjects appear weightless as they move around, breaking through the surface and diving deep to explore the tranquility of the dark waters. These oil paintings are filled with vibrant colors, ripples and bubbles and extraordinary distortions.
