Samantha Vassallo (pronounced Vuh-sigh-yo) is a Latina illustrator from the Hudson Valley of New York and currently teaching English in Tokyo, Japan.
She studied at Lesley University of Art and Design where she received her BFA in illustration in 2018.

Sam uses bright colors, tiny details, and textural elements to create work thats inspired by the people, fashion, music, and events that surround her everyday life. She also enjoys making images that touch on themes of 'hygge' through relaxing moments and spaces. Sam's tools of choice are watercolor, inks, and photoshop.

Her other interests include: drinking a good cup of coffee, looking through thrift and antique stores, walking around town, and watching (binging) movies and series.
