About the Artist

Hi. I'm Deborah Samia, a California native sculptor in the Bay Area, and I received my artistic training in BFA from the Academy of Art University (AAU) in 1998. After that, I aggregated various jobs sculpting public monuments, sculpting miniature figurines and ornaments, creating high-end Halloween masks, and assisting other acclaimed Bay Area artists, such as, Bruce Wolfe, Mario Chiodo, and others.

Over 14 years, I have been teaching Figure Modeling, Portrait, and Ecorché at AAU and Pontifex University, and creating artwork as the lead artist at Chiodo Art Development. More importantly, I was honored to assist in sculpting “Remember Them: Champions for Humanity” monument located at a prominent area in downtown Oakland.

One of my artistic inspiration comes from the famous French impressionist and modern art sculptor, Auguste Rodin. Rodin has been a long time inspiration for my work, especially seeing The Burghers of Calais has brought me to tears. Because of that my work include interpretation of the beauty of portraits and a human figure, and the importance of social justice and redemption in today’s local and global cultures.

Get in touch with me and see how I can help you with your sculpting projects.
