Shake It Up

The past couple days I have been slowly revamping a section or two in my art studio. 

When I first realized that I would require such a space, I had to be a little creative with the whole process of putting it all together but I made it work.

I still have some shelving and baskets to get, however it's definitely getting there. My studio is actually a cute little corner tucked away, sort of like a secret room within another room. It's a place where I can listen to my favorite music and explore all of my ideas. Other than the bantering between the cat and dog, oh and the kids, lol, it's typically a very peaceful place.


I love the shift of energy that comes when I organize. When I was younger, I can't count how many times I would change my room around. My bed, dresser, desk and knick knacks constantly trading places. So much fun!


Shifting things around and shaking things up a bit can help make room to bring in the new. Simple organization can help prepare you to receive all the goodies the Universe has to offer.


I try to take a visual of my work space quite often. I want things around me to support my vision, whatever that happens to be. Because of this practice, when I sit at my desk to work on a project, I can feel the magic and love that completely surrounds me, the energy is amazing.

I do have some very special items that I keep close to me; my moms angelic figurines, favorite pictures, found objects such as feathers and stones. I also have assorted crystals that some of my students have generously given to me. 


In what ways do you fill your space with love? Do you have a special altar or area that lifts your vibration up?

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.
