Sam Toft

Sam Toft’s paintings follow her own characters (not always human) on seaside adventures. 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 friends are for life.

Sam Toft's narrative paintings are quirky, fun and beautifully composed. Born in June 1964 Sam's earliest ambition amongst others was to work in a post office. luckily for art lovers, after inspired tutelage at Liverpool Community College, Sam decided to give it a go with her pictures. The limited edition prints feature Sam's now infamous characters, "The Mustard's", Ernest Hemingway Mustard and his dear lady wife Violet along with their much loved eccentric friends and pets. Using mixed media, pencil, oil pastels, coloured inks and her own idiomatic techniques, Sam depicts a seaside world of faded ice-cream colours where the breeze is always blowing and life is utterly delicious.
