Samantha A Meyers aka RUBYSPAM was born in Dodge City, Kansas on December 22, 1976. Due to the epidemic of small town boredom and divorce, she moved to Canada with her mother at the age of 5. Eventually at a young age she was left with no parents and only one outlet for expression: Art. Later in life she gained a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art at The Ontario Collage of Art and Design in Toronto, Canada and a Business Certificate for Business and Entrepreneurship at St. Clair Collage in Windsor, Canada. Wanting to expand her career as an artist, she and her boyfriend packed up the car and drove across the country to the west coast of California and set up permanent residence in San Francisco. She is now a full time artist working out of Art Explosion Studios where all of her subject matter has deep emotion and intellectual thought process through her many life experiences called luggage. Thank God the car was big enough to hold it all.



My art derives from an area of myself that will always evolve with time and exposure. It will continue to amalgamate into deeper yet simpler areas which in turn, is the most complicated.

Aside from acrylic and watercolour, I choose to go outside my normal realm of materials. I use certain types of food, liqueurs, wine, and other beverages that will heighten the message, whether it be subtle or not, to bring the connection from art to viewer to a more closer level.

"I'm in a state of over saturated reality which doesn't constitute itself as normal therefore characterizing it as non-reality; therefore, I am".        -RUBYSPAM-
