Hello, I'm Sam and I'm a freelance illustrator & surface pattern designer
living in the lovely Ribble Valley in the UK with my husband and son.
After studing Fine Art at University I spent twenty years working as
an in-house designer at a greeting card company.
Now I'm really happy to be freelancing.
I'm inspired by everyday life,
walking the dog, nature, watching the changes in the seasons.
And I love a good rummage in a charity shop.
In September 2020 I won first prize in the Templar
Design & Illustration Awards in the Picture Book Catergory.
I've designed cards and other paper products for many UK and international companies including Noel Tatt, Otter House, Ling,
Marks & Spencer, CCA Occasions,
Crown Point Graphics and more.
My artwork is mostly digital, created in Illustrator, Procreate and Photoshop.
Have a look around and if you need an illustrator like me,
don't hesitate to get in touch.
I also like to print some of my own products,
I have my own little range of cards and homeware
which is available here.
I'll be adding some new prints to my shop over the next few weeks.
Please have a virtual wander around my shop!
