Brooklyn-born with a heart that belongs to Orange County, Kathleen Sampson first discovered her passion for art when she was seven years old; by high school she knew it would be her life’s calling.

Decades later, after a successful career as a swim & sportswear designer, Kathleen has found her art again.

“I will always be a designer—loving fabrics, color, the excitement of creating a new look—but my life’s passion is in creating art that explores this wonderful journey we are all on.”

Creating “Embrace” has been Kathleen’s journey; she is inspired to draw and write about life’s everyday moments that capture her heart. While the inspiration may come from something serious, the outcome is always positive and uplifting.

Kathleen lives in Tustin, CA, where she has raised her three children, dogs, a cat that thought he was a dog, turtles, rabbits and chickens. According to Kathleen, Embrace’s message to live “free from fear” was inspired by her brother, Stuart Haskin’s, work as executive director of Get Safe—a non-profit committed to empowering people from all walks of life through its personal safety and awareness programs.
