mom/daughter time

I was thrilled that I was able to spend the whole day with one of my daughters! I thought I'd start the day off super fun by hitting the mall, I mean what girl doesn't love to shop?!

Our theme was Christmas, as I knew we'd find a lot of stores already well decorated. It was a really great day chatting about designing and just catching up on girl stuff.

Hi, my name is Chayse, I'm Sam's daughter. Today for bring your kid to work day I went comp shopping with my mom. I took pictures of Christmas related things for my mood board which I found out I'd use later. After that I made Christmas motifs on my moms iPad. Mom showed me how to move them onto her computer and into Illustrator so that I could make a pattern. I learned that making art is a lot harder than it seems but I had fun!

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.
