About Samantha Rothenberg

While art can often feel too highbrow or formal to connect to, illustrator Samantha Rothenberg creates "screenshot Stories in highlights" that her 180K+ Instagram followers can relate to. The feminist illustrator known as violetclair has a lot to say about the world, and she’s got a humorous and engaging way to doing just that. Her account speaks to the experiences of modern women, especially relating to online dating, toxic masculinity, and radical self love. Her empowering art connects in a big way with her audience, finding the line between fun, infuriating, and fabulous and creating the kind of inspiring art that makes people, especially young women, feel heard and not alone.
