Time Flies

I can't believe it's been 3 months since my last entry! I began my pattern surface course with Make It In Design and that is the last thing I remember. :) A lot has happened, that's for sure.


I finished my first module of MIID which was super exciting!! I learnt so much, actually way more than I originally thought I would. Plus, as an added bonus, I met a group of fabulous creatives. Loving support, friendship and insight...how does it get any better than that?! 


Besides the technical side of things, there is also so much I discovered about myself. One being that the act of creativity is vital to my existence or at least to a happier one. I know without a doubt that I hid that part of myself for a long time. Maybe I thought I could do without or get by with it just being a hobby that I could pull out from time to time. In the past few months the Universe has opened not one but many doors. Doors to paths that feel as though they are filled with possibility and potential to great things.


It suddenly feels like I've been re-directed and now it's full steam ahead. Surprise!


As I move forward, I'm excited and elated. I'm incredibly grateful however I'm also just like many others who would be entering a new chapter, I'm scared! Not to the extreme that it stops me rather it's a feeling of uncertainty as I'm just not sure what this new future will look like. The Ego loves to be in control!


This fear keeps me moving and focused whenever I need to be.  I want to live my life with no regrets and I want to see how it all turns out! I set the intention to give of myself 100% and so I shall see what comes from that. Time will tell.

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.
