A bit about me.

Hi there! :)
I don't really like to talk about my self too much, but perhaps you'd like to know who is behind the artwork. So here's a bit of info for you.

Firstly, my name is Jesse Samuel Wood.
So while my first name is Jesse, I go by my middle name. I sign my work as 'Samuel J', with the J being for Jesse. Hence 'Samuel J Art'
I live in Yeppoon with my beautiful wife. We love this area very much, but we also love to travel! I have so far had the privilege of visiting Japan, and the USA. I loved both, but I must say Japan is such an amazing, beautiful country.

I'm 25 years old, and have always liked to draw & paint for as long as I can remember. My grandma used to teach me how to paint with oil paints, when I was little. I also did art at high school (home schooled), but apart from that I haven't had any formal training. I just keep practising, experimenting, and that helps me to improve. 
My artwork often takes me many hours to complete. Especially the large A2 size drawings, and ones with intricate details. I find inspiration in Plants & Animals. Nature has so many beautiful things which we can all find enjoyment in. I guess that's one of the reasons I loved Japan. I also love our own native plants & animals that we have in our own backyard! (Here in Australia).
Anyway, that's enough about me for now. Thank you for coming to visit my website, and taking a bit of time to read about me, and view my work.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries.
Regards - Samuel
