Samuel Troxell

Determination has been the driving force in Sam’s life and is a favored aspect in his art.  This force has caused his art to be various yet traditional, and is often inspired by nature for it demonstrates such force.  Such views derive from his childhood in the bluff lands of Wisconsin along the Mississippi. His first real attempt at art at the age of 15 was making a silver bracelet for his mother.  He has traveled the world from the Arctic Circle to the Andes Mountains which inspires his art.  Metal has never disappointed him and is a constant challenge due to its nature.  Metal by nature is tough and resilient and only by understanding its nature can one learn to work with it, not against it.  His art is a testament to this knowledge and is both a marker of progression as a person and a guide to his future.
