Samantha was inspired by her son’s love of crafting and the joy they got from decorating simple rocks together. Samantha believes that art projects don’t always need to be complex to showcase great creativity. Kids and adults don’t need to be expert artists to make great art, and that’s what her book on rock art strives to drive home. The art techniques in her book range from simple designs, like words and dots, to intricate designs and blending, all of which the book carefully takes you through, step by step.
