Bio:

Samantha Liddick goes by her nickname, Sami. She currently resides in Seattle, Washington. Ithaca, New York is where she grew up most of her life. Sami is Deaf, a user of American Sign Language, and a Gallaudet University alumna who holds two degrees in Photography and Graphic Design. When she is not working at Starbucks as a hipster barista, she pursues her passion and expertise in photography (which started when she was four years old!) by showing her artworks at exhibitions and at Ketaverse, a side business she co-owns with her business partner. Self-Portrait photography is her favorite. Not too long ago, Nordstrom hired Sami to edit their photos for their website and magazine spreads. Sami sees art as a way to encompass her heart and mind. This is reflected on her social media where she invites and empowers others to do the same.
