Born in Liverpool, England, Samantha Humphreys  is currently lecturing in Writtle University College, Essex. Her own art practice explores the boundary between the physical and online presence and has recently been motivated by memory, variations to the state of mind and the conscious and unconscious blurring of the line between work and play. Since the Covid-19 pandemic,  Samantha has been focusing on how creativity can facilitate good mental health and wellbeing and is running a series of workshops to explore this subject.
