Sam Toft lives in a tall thin winky wonky house and works from her studio by the sea in Brighton. She did not always want to be an artist. In fact she really wanted to work in a Post Office or be an amazing Gymnast. But in the absence of a suitable circus to run away with she thought she'd give it a go with her pictures
She considers herself to be very lucky with her current career choice.
Sam Toft has created an imaginary world inhabited by one Ernest Hemmingway Mustard, professional tuneless hummer and part-time hurricane predictor of Brighton and Hove. He lives in a not-so-damp basement flat with his dear lady wife Violet and Doris their grumpy and rather portly Jack Russell Terrier. Sam follows their adventures along the Prom and across the globe. She work in oil pastels and coloured inks using proper artists' materials along with kitchen towels, items of cutlery, steel pen nibs, pencil dust, old tooth brushes as well as her innovative fingers and thumbs technique. Patent pending.
