It began in State College, Pennsylvania, during the spring of 1991. A child was born, named after a dog and set loose on the world. Upon graduating from the University of New Orleans in 2013, Samantha Jane Mullen took to burning things and the creative beast inside her freaked out. After 11 years living in New Orleans, Samantha Jane moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico where she now spends her days making art and exploring nature. Samantha is a self-taught wood burning artist whose work explores elements of the natural world recombined in unlikely situations. She uses the traditional craft technique of pyrography to burn surrealist imagery into wood, bridging the divide between classic and modern.
