Samantha Hobbelen

"My works are vibrant, bright and are created with the ethos of more is more!
I am a self-taught abstract artist and entrepreneur having built successful businesses for the past 15s years. I am a lover of art, colour and interiors. I started painting for pure enjoyment and meditation while growing my well-known children’s furniture brand, Hobbe.
Throw in three boys under five - painting has become the calm in a
wonderfully busy and chaotic world. I use a combination of brush and palette knife with acrylic on canvas being my favourite mediums. My abstract paintings are all about vibrant colour that emanate joy.
I hope that my artwork will add colour to the homes and spaces they live in and bring happiness to all those who come into contact with them.
Born and bred in Queensland, and after a number of years living in Sydney, I now live on the Sunshine Coast with my husband, three boys Hugo, Harvey and Henry and labradoodle, Eduardo."
