The Universe Is Listening

Funny how the Universe guides us. We can be aware of it...or not but that guidance is always there. So many opportunities for us to be at our best and truly happy.

Earlier this year my sister sent me a random (perhaps divinely timed) message. She had seen a posting for a business that was seeking artists for commission work at a local hospital. I did look into it, however I knew as exciting as it sounded, I just wasn't ready. Instead what my sister did that day was to remind me of my creative passion.

This passion is something that I've never really felt as separate from myself, more like a constant urge within. Without it I will survive of course but who wants to just survive? When I allow it to flow through me, I feel full of life. The more I connect with this energy, the stronger this feeling becomes. I've got to admit, it's a pretty great place to be. :)


Not long after that day, in fact I believe it was a couple days later, I began searching for online classes. Right off the bat I discovered Kara Bullock. She has a wonderful style and is incredibly talented. I got a good vibe so decided to give her Frida Kahlo workshop a try. I have always adored Frida, as many of us do.

I learned a ton from Kara's teachings, mostly though I learned what I am capable of. By letting my guard down and letting go of the fear, I opened myself up to experience a brand new journey.


When you say to the Universe, "Ok show me what is possible, how far can I go?", believe me, be ready because life will deliver it right to your front door.

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.
