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,
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.
Please have a virtual wander around my shop!
