Sam Read

Sam obtained a BA (Hons) Degree in graphic design at Exeter University where she specialised in illustration.

She has been creating works of mixed media for the last twenty-eight years whilst raising three daughters, working part-time in the art department of a Boys’ Grammar School and working in the gardens of a private estate.

Sam is lucky enough to be surrounded and inspired by the wonders of Richmond Park in her everyday life, with it’s flora and fauna frequently appearing in her work. She also spends time in Cornwall.

“I am never without a sketchbook to hand so I am constantly drawing! Sometimes the drawings are simply left in the sketchbook and other times they develop into more in-depth ideas and detailed images”
