  Samantha's guitar "Patio at The Peaks" was featured in The Arizona Republic and TravelHost Magazine in 2005.  Visit her guitar at Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe, AZ.  

  Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central AZ, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum and Fender Musical Instruments sponsored eighty 10' tall Fender Stratocaster guitars painted by famous and local artists for their charity auction February 4, 2006 at the Dodge Theatre.  The largest public art auction in Arizona history. www.bbbsaz.org

 "Four Peak's Brewery in Tempe, Arizona's largest microbrewery and restaurant knew they wanted their guitar to focus on the elements that make Four Peaks great...delicious beer, cool atmosphere, and awesome people.  So they asked Samantha to help make it happen.  A packed happy hour on the patio served as a perfect opportunity for her to paint live on the guitar a scene that reflected the best part of the brewery: its patrons"

 Samantha's guitar: “Party in Paradise” was featured in The Arizona Republic 2006

 Presented by Casino Arizona, Featuring 20 playable-sized Fender Stratocaster guitars.

 Samantha was invited to paint live at a special gathering of Big Brother Big Sister supporters the evening of September 15, 2006.  The event was held at a beautiful private residence in Paradise Valley, AZ.  As the party started Mayor Phil Gordon, Brian Hassett, Alice Cooper, Kevin Hickey and Pablo Munoz were just some of the special guests who gave inspirational speeches about how they’re lives have been changed by helping Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona.  As the drinks and hors’doeuvres were served Scott “the numbers genius” was on hand to answer everyone’s math questions.  Alice and Sheryl Cooper were the first people to get painted on the guitar.  A line formed shortly after of all the guests who wanted to be included.   At the end of the night over 65 people will be remembered forever on Samantha’s guitar including the dog.  Everyone counts when you’re remembering a special event like this one!
