Artist, Sam Macy is a graduate of The University of Vermont where he studied mathematics, art and architecture. His love of the outdoors and the natural beauty of each species of tree inspired his vision to create not only iconic landmarks and landscapes but commissioned pieces as well.

Sam lives in Vermont with his wife, Ali and GSP pup, Blue. When he isn't head-down in his scroll saw, he loves spending time outside. Whether he is messing around in the back yard, building a pigeon loft, hiking, paddle boarding, snowshoeing or finishing up something on Ali's "honey-do" list, he makes sure as much of it as possible happens in the VT snow or sunshine. He is constantly looking for new projects or things to learn which is where inspiration for so many of his Shadow Boxes comes from.

About Sam

When we bought our home in 2017, it was a move-in ready duplex. So naturally, we tore it apart. Where some people may have seen the potential for renters and a second passive income, we saw the perfect starter home that would allow for the time and space to create exactly what we wanted and needed.

What is now Sam's shop was once a garage and then a kitchen, living room and office. The shop itself has been painted, repainted (repainted again) and reconfigured dozens of times as his work and needs grow. Much like any living, breathing and growing endeavor, the shop continues to evolve each and every day as Sam takes on each unique project (and Ali still puts him to work with her never ending honey-do house list).
