My Work

Paintings: Sam works largely in paint, but also likes to use layers of collage and drawing, so she thinks that this makes her a little bit of mixed media! She has shown a few pieces here on the website and will produce more for the gallery soon - keep your eyes peeled!

Illustration: Sam has created characters in the past and is currently building Princess Luna of The Two Beds. using Instagram to provide a platform to post regular drawings and Sam has written some short stories to go with her. Princes Luna of The Two Beds is a picture book character aimed at younger audiences, following a mischievous but utterly adorable & silly dog

Teaching: Sam also runs her own local art room www.thestarryartroom@gmail.com where she runs local art classes for most ages, but specialising in smaller groups for teens & tweens.
