About Sam

This is me, drawing 5 year old me, dressed in one of those awful 1970's orange and brown flower power long nylon party dresses - well it was Christmas 1979!
I've been a professional artist since 2012 and I'm probably mostly known for painting the universally loved animal the cow.  However in recent years I've enjoyed telling stories with my artwork and I've enjoyed a variety of projects and collaborations.  Whether that's illustrating and documenting the social history of Tewkesbury which resulted in a 8 metre long embroidery that was created by 8,000 local residents, or creating picture book illustrations or painting bespoke original commissions weaving family stories into the artwork or creatively collaborating with corporates and schools - whatever it is, it's always about promoting creativity as a way of life.
