Today we’d like to introduce you to Sam List.
Sam, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
After 4 years of working in the “real world” I had landed a job as a Revenue Manager, aka numbers all day. As much as I love excel (and believe me, I truly do) I was longing to find an outlet to destress from long weeks. That’s when I found succulents! The most gorgeous – and forgiving – type of plant there is. I always had a creative side, but it really comes to life while working with succulents and creating living DIY pieces.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
Our succulent workshops are perfect for bringing out the artsy side of people who don’t even know they have one! We help people create everything from stunning Spring Living Wreaths, to Driftwood pieces to Fall Pumpcculents. We are inspired by seeing people connect with nature and meet another local San Diegans. We hope that our workshops can be a distraction and relief from the stresses of real life. And if nothing else, a chance to meet others and develop new friendships!
What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
Get out there! Find something that takes your mind off adulting and brings you happiness. It really is all about the little things, and I only wish I had explored my skills and passions earlier.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
