Name: Samantha Kettering
Background: Samantha is the quintessential misunderstood artist. Born into a wealthy family from one of the more affluent boroughs of Los Angeles, Sam spent most of her early years doing things that pissed her parents off. Despite the ludicrous amount of money that her parents spent in order to send her to private school, Sam was always more interested in what her parents called 'delinquent art.' In her five years of high school (she was forced to repeat her freshman year due to what the school referred to as 'intense apathy toward schoolwork') she spent more time in tattoo shops, at raves, and with graffiti artists than she did in the classroom.
She managed to finish high school, although more to please her parents than out of any desire to improve herself academically, but her parents threw her out of the house when she told them she wanted to forego college in order to pursue a career as a tattoo artist. Since then, she's bounced from friend to friend, sleeping on couches and in spare bedrooms, not only working on her skill as a tattooer, but also picking up some skill as a DJ, graffiti artist, songwriter, and sculptor. If there's an artistic style or medium, odds are she's tried it at least once.
