Sam is inspired by the natural world and in particular walks in the Forest of Dean and trips to the coast.

She takes photographs for reference and then transposes these to canvas in an abstract form.

Sam predominantly uses acrylic paint for her work.  Making additional marks in charcoal, acrylic pen or scraping the surface with different tools. Sam enjoys making up her own mediums to give a texture and depth to her work and loves to experiment with different techniques and mediums.

She is respectful of the environment so tries to use recycled materials wherever possible.   Utilising canvasses bought from charity shops or donated and frequently using up leftover house paint.
