 Sam is a furniture artist, paint retailer, and painting guide focusing on creating the home of your dreams without sacrificing your health! Wise Owl Paint is a Michigan-based paint brand that offers an eco-friendly, non-toxic paint that is durable, long-lasting, and easy to use. The Chalk Synthesis line is perfect for furniture and decor, user-friendly, and easy to blend. The One Hour Enamel line is a durable cabinet/door paint with a built-in topcoat that cures in record time.  

 Sam grew up in an Army family and traveled the world for the first twenty years of her life, developing a love for architecture and design worldwide. As an adult, her fascination with treasure hunting led her to spend weekends at thrift stores, estate sales, and auctions. She quickly learned to refurbish, repurpose, and paint furniture. 

 Sam loves working with clients on their projects, guiding them through the process, and watching them bloom as an artist. Whether they are painting a small family heirloom, revamping their entire kitchen, or launching a painting business of their own, watching them flourish is the absolute best reward!
