Sam Toft and her Wonderful World of Mustard

Ernest Hemmingway Mustard lives on the Brighton Hove border in a not-so-damp basement flat, with his dear lady wife Violet and Doris their grumpy and rather portly Jack Russel Terrier. Sam Toft has been their official picture maker and story teller for over 20 years. These characters are her imaginary friends, always there inside her head, helping make sense of a world that can often seem stranger than fiction. Sam’s work is widely published and distributed internationally. She has a small shop in Brighton which is open only a few weekends a year, but always has a lovely display in the window. Around the corner are two beautifully restored red phone boxes which house monthly exhibitions by a wide variety of talented artists who love to exhibit in Dog & Bone Gallery at Powis square. It really is worth a visit. Sam’s original paintings are available from www.samtoftoriginals.co.uk . A small collection of chosen prints and favourite published items are available here online from Nan Mustard’s Mustard Shop. A separate online business run by Sam’s sister Louise sells other beautifully wrapped gifts from www.mustardhampers.co.uk

Final show of original work in 2020, goes live at 6pm friday 9th October at www.samtoftoriginals.co.uk

I sat in the unfamiliar chair with the proffered disposable mask and tried to look at ease. My barber had kind eyes and alarming eyebrows that were made all the more prominent by his huge white mask. The eyebrows were hairless and looked as if they’d been coloured- in with a thick stick of charcoal. Far too high on his head. And immovable. I couldn’t take my eyes off them.
