Sam Toft

Sam Toft

Sam's earliest ambition was to work in a post office or join a circus that would accept clumsy acrobats, and had a nice elephant or two. She's had an impressive CV of jobs including a Fire Extinguisher Sales Person, a Death Grants Advisor, a Wedgwood Rooms Worker, an Accountant's Assistant, a Silver Service Waitress, a Catering Manager, a Yoga Teacher. Never short of a job or three through school, she could never decide what she wanted to do or study.

After attempting two degrees she still felt like a fish out of water.

So when she found herself inspired to make a living from drawing pictures, she approached it in the same way as she approached all those early jobs - with enthusiasm and resilience.
She managed to enrol on a part-time BTEC in General Art and Design at Liverpool's City College at 23 - her portfolio a self-confessed "pitiful bunch of dog-eared sketches in a board backed envelope". But they took her on and allowed her to dream that she had found her vocation - and that dream came true.

Sam say's "never a day goes by when I do not thank my lucky stars for what I do. I see myself as an incredibly fortunate person. I make my living from drawing a whole bunch of my imaginary friends!

Sam's world features the now infamous Mustard Family - Ernest Hemingway and his wife Violet along with a brood of eccentric friends and pets whose antics touch our hearts by reflecting the very things we as human beings do in our every day lives. Using mixed media, pencil, oil pastels, coloured inks and her own idiomatic techniques, Sam depicts a world of faded ice-cream colours where the breeze is always blowing and life is utterly delicious.
