About the artists

Sam Compton:

I am a native of South Carolina. I studied art at the University of South Carolina receiving a BA in studio art with a concentration in fiber arts and an MFA in art education. As an art educator, I received national board certification and taught 26 years in public education. I was an adjunct faculty member at the University of South Carolina and Newberry College. I am currently retired. I am a published co-author for textbooks in South Carolina, Texas and Massachusetts and published an article in an art educators magazine.I am a professional artist and have had one-man shows in South Carolina and New York. My work has been exhibited in group shows in South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. Last year, I won first place in mixed media at the South Carolina State Fair. I was honored as one of six outstanding artists in South Carolina by the South Carolina Arts Commission for their 30th year celebration for the arts.
