Hello, my name is Sam. I’m an illustrator and I’m fortunate to live in the lovely Ribble Valley. After studying Fine Art at university many years ago, I’ve had various creative jobs. I spent over 20 years working in greeting card companies, and now I’m a freelancer I’m busy developing my style and enjoying myself.
I’m inspired by everything around me, especially what I see on my daily dog walks and seeing everything change through the seasons. I always start with a sketch either in pencil or ink, then scan in the resulting drawings and work on them digitally.
With modern printing I’ve been able to have my artwork turned into products such as tea towels, cards and trays. I try to get everything printed in England if I can. It’s an amazing way to share my art.
