Samdani creates abstract paintings inspired by organic shapes found in nature. The limited color palettes and translucent layers in her paintings convey different moods of seasons. At the time, she was a new student at Academy of Art University, and since then has received an M.F.A. in Abstract Painting at the San Francisco based school. Currently she is living and painting as a full-time artist. Samdani has quickly made her mark in the California art scene, being represented by City Art gallery in San Francisco and participating in numerous exhibitions, including the Islamic Art Exhibit at the Sun Gallery in Hayward and Triton Museum in San Jose.
