This past week I started with some sore muscles while I patiently wait for my massage appointments. What started out as a pretty slow paced week turned into a new adventure! I loved these prompts. There's something so relaxing about leaving out color and just focusing on lines and shapes. There really is no pressure to have a completed piece. It's more about giving yourself the time to explore an idea. You can then take that idea as far as you like.

 My favorite day of course was family. 

For the whole month of November, I will be focused on creating festive patterns and prints!

2020 or not, this is ultimately my favorite time of the year! I can't wait to share bits of my process and completed pieces.



FYI....super busy time in my studio right now. I've been working to create a variety of great gift ideas that you will be able to find at my Etsy shop over this next month. You will also see some of my illustrations soon available as needle punch! 


BONUS! Coming this holiday season...FREE pattern ideas and a tutorial or two, right here on my blog!

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.
