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 works 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.
There’s a new Little Shop in Brighton to visit, a separate mail order shop online, an open submission gallery in two restored Brighton phones boxes, a book with stories in, a new Mustard Hamper business, a lively Facebook group and Instagram accounts for Sam’s work, the Little Shop and the Dog and Bone phonebox galleries
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Mustard!
A dear little shop around the corner at Clifton Hill. Full of treasures for you to discover. Drawings, paintings , gifts and surprises you won’t see anywhere else. It’s an experience reserved for our walk in customers. We’re a little old fashioned like that. We don’t do mailorder. Just small editions, one offs, exclusives and a little bit of everything else, squeezed into our tiny space. Charming staff. Nice wrapping.
