keep moving forward

When we're paying attention to life, when we follow our hearts and our inner most passions, we can be rewarded in the biggest ways.

Just the other day I was asking for confirmation of my journey and choices I've made recently in regards to my creative ventures. Some days when my confidence seems to be low and miles away, I wonder what the heck I'm doing. I question my path and the success I ultimately wish to have.


Today I woke up with the news that one of my collections I had submitted, placed 3rd runner up with the fabulous MOYO magazine. It always amazes me to think that my designs are recognized in such a way.

You can check out the article and MOYO magazine here.

To create more of this same joy I know that I have to keep moving forward no matter what. This might mean some days are crazy and chaotic but that's ok. It's so worth it.


When you are so involved in something, I think any part of your life really, you can become so focused that you may not notice the change that is taking place. I am so grateful for signs that say, "Hey, you are doing ok, keep it up."

I need that direction and loving nudge. I believe that we all do.


What drives you and brings you happiness? Have you ever received confirmation that you're on the right path?

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.
