Samia was born in NY to Colombian immigrants but grew up on the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
During college in Bogota, her interest in indigenous art (common in her hometown) would grow. It was during this time that she started learning about and being exposed to new art forms.
When she came back to the US she started working with an architectural signage company where she learned about machines, materials and graphic design. This continued to pique her interest in different art forms.
She works with watercolor, acrylic paint and other materials to create her art.
