Judge: Samantha Domagala

Samantha Domagala is a Kenmore Based painter and illustrated under the business name, The Roaming Buffalo Art. Her focus is to capture the beauty of local architecture, highlighting some of the most well-known, and niche areas of Western New York. Her primary medium is watercolor, while she uses gouache, ink and acrylic to highlight, bring out bold lines for captivating pieces.

Samantha’s artwork and sense of community has led to multiple collaborations such as Buffalo Dapper Paws, Interiors of WNY, Buffalo Printing and Design, City Threads. Her business efforts has developed to multiple product lines that have expanded outside of the traditional paint and paper.

Samantha is also motivated by giving back to WNY through various projects, especially during times of tragedy. Her artwork featuring “Chuck, The Bubble Man”, “The Old Pink”, and “Art Dog” illustrations has helped raise funds for local individuals and funds familiar to the community.

Samantha has longterm goals to develop The Roaming Buffalo Art to become more acquainted with local non profits, immersing herself in the world of fine art and making herself a staple of the community.
