Art, like Life, is really what you make it.
Hello, and welcome to the [temporary] Samplicity Art Hovel website. I am Samantha Ann
Bohnert. I have been making art all my life, and have yet to meet a medium I
don't enjoy using... or at least find interesting!
I have an ongoing quest to synthesize multiple mediums and approaches into
each of my pieces. Often, layers of product and unexpected combinations
create the most interesting and thought-provoking art.
I was born Samantha Ann
Lemke, the third of Lee and Laure's three children. My siblings Brian and
Stefanie live with their families in Minnesota.
On June 18th of 2009, I
opened Samplicity Art Hovel (DBA) in my hometown of Glencoe, MN.
I studied at Bethel University in St. Paul and Bemidji State University,
graduating from the latter in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in art and a minor
In 2010, my husband Aron became the music teacher in Littlefork, MN, so we
moved the Art Hovel "way up north."
In September of 2016, we became the parents of Hugo and Leo... and life has since been quite a whirlwind! This is the explanation for the website being quite lacking in content. Please do visit the Samplicity Art Hovel Facebook page to see slightly-more-frequent updates.
Thank you for your understanding and support. ~Samantha Ann
