Image Description: 

A close-up image of a white woman wearing black rimmed glasses and a dark button-up top. Her brown hair is pulled back in a braid. Behind her is a background of dark, green leaves. She is looking directly at the camera grinning. 


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.
