About the artist: Born in June 1964, Sam's earliest ambition, among 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.
Sam Toft's narrative paintings are quirky, fun and beautifully composed. Her 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.
