It's been a pretty crazy past few months. I never in a million years would have thought I'd be painting again...not on a regular basis, that is. To be honest, I don't remember when I last created with such a strong focus. It's been years, at least 10. 

To give you the super quick low down; I painted originals and sold mainly through Ebay (that's when it was just getting popular). I gained a client or two over that time who would purchase commission pieces. I also sold custom made silver jewelery at a local gallery, within their giftshop.


The long period in between then and now includes a few births, illness and death, a handful of moves and a heck of a lot of personal discovery. I think I reached a point where I just didn't feel motivated anymore. Although I hung onto ALL of my art supplies, like I said, I didn't really think I'd be doing this again.


I can totally see now that everything I've done was preparing me for this main event in my life and there is so much to be grateful for. I have landed here with purpose! ūüėä


Since I've opened these new doors or perhaps re-opened the old ones, the Universe continues to bring me synchronicity. I also recognize that every moment I have the time, the tools and the clients to create for, I feel incredibly full inside. 


Working as a medium and a healer has helped my journey in such a huge way. I have the ability to meditate, ground myself and even get a hold of spirit if I so choose. These are wonderful gifts that we can all use to help us connect to our creative center.


Welcome! This is my new chapter and I'm thrilled that you've decided to join me!

Sam began her creative journey as a young child with a love for colorful acrylics and folksy style imagery. Creating whimsical and happy art has since become part of her regular process. Currently exploring watercolor and gouache as mediums, she's always seeking new challenges that will help her grow as an artist.


Sam's illustrations have been featured on Print & Pattern and Swatch & Repeat. They have also been published in both Uppercase and Teen Breathe magazine. 


Books are now available on Amazon! Coming this year you will be able to find a wide variety of journals and creative books for kids!


The one thing that you will find ties all of her work together is her originality and the way that she executes each piece. There's a ton of love and care that goes into it all, down to the very last detail.


Sam finds gratitude in every day that she has another opportunity to make more art and create pretty things for a living. A favorite spot to sit and ponder future projects is her garden. Unless it happens to be winter, in which case you will find her at her desk, wrapped up in a warm sweater, sipping a large cup of tea. 


Besides the creative stuff, Sam loves taking naps, hanging out at the beach and Netflix binging. Currently, she resides in Pitt Meadows, BC with her husband, their three daughters and fur babies, Pepper and Nick.
