Samira Sabulis is of mixed Eastern European and Balkan descent. She spent her childhood in Poland and Bulgaria and began an early career in dance and modeling. As a model, she worked with some of Europe’s top photographers and designers, participating in fashion shows and appearing in catalogues, newspaper advertisements and commercials. Still in her teens, Samira performed as a dancer, touring Europe with pop singers and artists. At the age of sixteen she hosted her own television talk show, where she interviewed famous musicians and actors.
Having been a student of both classical and modern ballet, Samira carries that appreciation of the art in her work today.
Samira has been painting since her childhood, and her work is highly inspired by the Old Masters and the works of classic painters such as Rembrandt , Jan Vermeer, Van Gogh, Hals, Steen and more.
The above influences, combined with Samira’s own travels, life experiences and creative soul have given her work a unique and distinguished edge.
After completing a degree in International Business from the University of Maryland, Samira realized that art was her true calling, and decided to devote herself to the study and practice of creative directing and photography.
