Samantha Qiao is a self-taught artist. Her artistic abilities were evident at a very early age, when she won awards in many landscape and architectural sketch competitions in China. Some of her earlier art works have been published over the past two decades.

Samantha began her watercolour journey when she joined Watercolour New Zealand in 2011 and she has exhibited her watercolours from the following year till now. She was initially inspired when she painted with Jacky Person and other local watercolourists in Wellington.

After a number of years, Samantha developed an interest in the New Zealand local landscape and water scenes. She loves exploring watercolour’s mysterious transparency, colour blends, and textural effects.

She has also become known as “the Church Artist” at Greenlane Christian Centre in recent years as people enjoy her live painting during worship. She exhibits with NZ Watercolour, NZ Art Show, Kiwi Art House (Cuba Street, Wellington), Alfred Memelink’s Art Space Gallery (Petone, Wellington), Thames Arts Gallery, Auckland Watercolour Society and Auckland Agricultural & Pastoral Association.

As an artist, Samantha is always open to new projects and creating new art. She is happy to respond to art commissions for individual needs; and will provide the exclusive piece that clients look for.
