Samantha Nolloth Artist HeadshotSamantha Nolloth is the sun to your shine and the cream to your coffee. With a passion for art as big as her personality, she makes learning art enjoyable and easy. Raised in a country farm house in small town New York, her passion for life took her on adventures around the world. Some of her most recognizable personal paintings were created from memories of her time abroad. After settling down outside Nashville in 2011, she decided to fully embrace being a full-time artist. Little did she know that just a few years later she would own and operate a five year old successful mobile painting party company, called Coffee and Canvas™, which now employs multiple artists. Through Coffee and Canvas™ she has taught thousands of students of all ages and skill levels. Each time she paints with someone new her passion for art and teaching grows to new heights. She receives great pleasure from volunteering every month at senior living centers and with her free kid’s painting club at the Nolensville library.

Apart from running Coffee and Canvas™ she is also pursuing life as a professional artist. She deeply enjoys commissioned painting projects, participating in art shows and selling her personal paintings to those who will enjoy her art as much as she enjoys creating it.
