Imagination can take you anywhere

Sam Toft and her Wonderful World of Mustard

***Thank you Belle Mellor for our BUMPY MUSTARD GIF ***


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.

LITTLE MUSTARD SHOP at 33 Clifton Hill Brighton, formerly selling only Sam’s own art, is now run as a Collective. There are monthly shows by different artists, but with a permanent Mustard gift corner (no mail order) where you’ll find unique pieces like hand painted jig dolls and small ceramic Dorises made by Sam herself. It’s open at weekends when COVID allows, but there’s always with something lovely to see in the window. Sam’s next exhibition there is 17th-30th April 2021.

Just around the corner at Powis Square there are two beautifully restored red phone boxes housing monthly exhibitions. Dog & Bone Gallery is Brighton’s smallest exhibition space. A COVID friendly adventure, it really IS worth a visit.

Sam’s original works (Drawings Paintings Bronzes) are now available online from www.samtoftoriginals.co.uk . A small collection of chosen prints and favourite published items can be purchased from this website at Nan‘s MUSTARDSHOP Cornwall and there‘s a separate online business run by Sam’s sister Louise selling other beautifully wrapped gifts. For that special someone who has almost everything, please visit www.mustardhampers.co.uk

What have I got to say?

What have I got to say?
Well, I popped into a Turkish Barber on impulse last week. I noticed they were open as I was passing with my weekly shop in the wheelie trolley, and so I walked in. In general, I’m a bit scared of new hairdressers, but I suddenly felt an urgent need for a post lockdown tidy up. 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.
