I’m Sam, an artist & champion of creativity in others.
Our world is full of beautiful things, particularly living things. I love to draw, paint and printmake. I enjoy two businesses, the work you see here and a sister business called www.ipaintdogs.com which delivers contemporary portrait paintings of dogs.
Your creativity interests me too. I write for my blog BloomCreatively which exists to encourage you into doing something, anything arty. Humans are happier when they have an outlet. Those interests can turn into sidelines and sidelines can turn into mainlines…you have no idea of your capabilities until you try then practice a little.
I deliver workshops and talk in the media about visual arts & creativity - am happy to travel as needed.
It’s nice to meet you, Samantha.
