Sam is a printmaker based in rural Northamptonshire. She originates from the flat fens of Lincolnshire where her Dad was a cabbage Farmer and she spent 20 years living in London where she studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and the Royal Drawing School.
Having returned to the countryside she finds inspiration from her local landscape, walking and drawing from observation then returning to her studio where she edits her sketches - adding in animals and other characters from her imagination. Her inspiration comes from many sources – medieval margins and bestiaries, animal prints from the 1800’s, folk art, old children’s books, and real life animals that have something of the unusual about them!
For many years she focused on etching but more recently she has concentrated on linocuts, enjoying the colour possibilities that the medium allows. Her recent body of work often involves more than 4 colour blocks of linocut, which demands careful concentration to ensure correct registration!
When not working in her studio, Sam teaches printmaking at the Royal Drawing School and is a core tutor on their Foundation programme at Trinity Buoy Wharf.
