Born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1994 and spending her childhood between both the greater Sacramento and Stockton, California area and Baltimore, Maryland, Sammy Joe Temple is a visual artist who currently is residing in New York City. She attended Pratt Institute's Utica, New York campus for two years, refining her fine arts but also concentrating on advertising, before moving to Brooklyn to continue on with her schooling for one more year at Pratt Institute's main campus. Joe now focuses on exploring ways to depict women and black Americans in relatable yet proud formats, and is looking to spend more time art directing photoshoots, short films, and advertisements in the near future as well. In a desire to expand her practiced artistic mediums, she has taken up occasional acting as well.
