Leading prize-winning artist, Samantha Ellis Fox is predominantly known for her oil based landscapes, but has recently begun to develop her work to include figurative paintings and drawings.  

Based between the Inishowen Peninsula and Co Tyrone it is from these landscapes she gleans her inspiration from both land and sea.  

Samantha exhibits regularly and has shown at the Royal Dublin Society, Royal Ulster Academy, Royal Hibernian Academy and as an invited artist at King House, Co Roscommon.  She has won numerous awards and her work is held in private and public collections.  More recently in 2019, Samantha had work accepted at three Royal Art Academies; The Royal Hibernian Academy - 189th Annual Exhibition, Dublin, Royal Ulster Academy - 138th Annual Exhibition, Belfast and The Royal Scottish Academy - 193rd Annual Exhibition, Edinburgh.
