Biography

Born in June 1964, Sam's earliest ambition was to work in a Post Office. Or at the very least to get a job in a good cake shop. However, after graduating from Kingston Polytechnic with a BA in Applied Social Sciences, working for a few years as a Civil Servant in Surrey, a Catering Manager in Middlesex and a Theatre Dresser in Hammersmith, she gave up the high life and moved to Liverpool for a spell on the unemployment register while she studied at the City College for a BTEC in Art and Design.

Sam has worked full time as an artist since 1992 using mixed media; oil pastels, coloured inks, scraffito and the innovative fingers-and-thumbs technique. Throughout her  work, Sam  has developed her charming and eccentric characters, "The Mustard's", Ernest Hemingway Mustard and his dear wife Violet along with their four-legged companions. Through them, she has created a beautiful world of fun, that captures the 'lighter side of life', the heartwarming affection between husband and wife and good old fashioned British eccentricity. Currently living in Hove, her works often depict the seaside with its sometimes sunny, sometimes windy and wet weather.

She has had work published as limited edition prints, cards and posters, distributed widely through such stores as Waterstones, WHSmith and IKEA. The previous two years have seen successful one-man shows in London, the continuing good health of her darling Moses Dog, and the birth of a new addition: Stanley Philpot, who will no doubt be working his black curly snout into her future masterpieces.
