Samantha Messias Raising Awareness With Her Art

Samantha Messias is an award-winning hyper-realistic artist who creates her art by turning her pain into purpose. She believes you can turn darkness into light. 

Much of her skill and creativity was developed by using her art as an outlet to release, heal and express her emotions from a traumatic childhood. After five horrible years with her birth parents, Samantha was adopted by a couple she would eventually adore. But it was very difficult for her to come to terms with what she had already suffered.

“For a while, I didn’t speak because of the trauma I had witnessed and endured, I remember being sat in a room at a roundtable with a pot of pencils and paper in front of me and after a time I began to draw, I started to communicate and express what happened to me by drawing it. At the time I didn’t realize that what I was doing was actually a form of art therapy and one that I would continue throughout my life.”

 

Tackling Difficult Themes Head On

Most of Samantha’s drawings in the early years of her career focused on happy subjects: client’s family members, beloved pets, inspirational celebrities, and majestic wild animals.

However, she now feels ready to address the dark and scary aspects of her life through her fully-developed art, just as she did with her early art as a child. So she created a drawing called “My Childhood”, which shows a little girl sitting down in the corner of a room, hugging her teddy bear and looking terrified of the male figure standing over her holding a bottle of wine with his belt unbuckled. Samantha describes this piece as “the start of something new that raises awareness about a matter that few people want to talk about but that happens to many all around the world”.

After the artist posted the completed drawing on Instagram, she received messages thanking her for being so brave and sharing the abuse children have to suffer. It’s like she gave her 5-year-old self a voice and called for help. And she is grateful that most of the comments were positive when she shared this piece.

 

Inspiring Others And Giving Them Strength

“You are bigger than your fears that were programmed into you as a child,” Samantha says. “Your message is more important than the opinions of others. So shine bright and speak your truth and lead the way for others to do the same.”

Through her art, Samantha wants to inspire people and show them that things get better and your problems do not last forever. Inspiring others with her artwork and giving hope through her story has been a powerful journey, and she feels a fulfilling emotion whenever someone is inspired by her story.

The artist feels like she has so much to offer this world. She uses her incredible gift to inspire big positive changes, empowering women and children through her work. She believes art can be so powerful in creating enormous change and is determined to make the aesthetes feel something when they see her art.

“I know it’s hard at times,” Samantha says. “But remember you are loved and you can add so much light and hope to this world if you continue to grow, learn, heal, live, laugh, love, share and thrive.”
