Samantha Dennis, an award-winning Toronto-based visual artist of Jamaican descent, skillfully fuses abstraction and realism techniques to craft vibrant portraits that celebrate the beauty of black bodies. Motivated by a desire for increased representation in the art world, Samantha navigates a fascinating intersection of identity as a black woman, exploring and capturing the diverse experiences of other black individuals through her paintings. In 2014, she earned her BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCADU (Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto). In late 2018, she started pursuing an independent art practice. Since then she has had her work featured in United Contemporary, Collision Gallery, Withrow Common, Nuit Blanche and many other prominent locations
