My name is Samantha Paris Estes and I'm a versatile art director and fine artist with over 20 years of experience building compelling brands and design solutions across multiple platforms.

I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of companies, from Fortune 100 to startups, on various projects. Some clients include: Vice, The Lenox Hotel, Harvard University, 38 Studios, TJX, EF | Go Ahead Tours, Liberty Mutual, Houghton Mifflin, Verizon and Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Fine Art:
On the flip side, my passion for art doesn’t stop at the office; I'm dedicated to painting and creating abstract art in acrylics and mixed media. My paintings are texture heavy and a statement piece for any home or business. Paintings are available for sale and I do custom work as well.
