Sam Toft

Sam Toft creates wonderful narrative style paintings which are quirky, fun and beautifully composed. Born in June 1964 Sam’s earliest ambition amongst 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.

Here’s what Sam says about her beginnings as an artist: “I moved from London up to live with my sister, and managed to enrol on a part-time BTEC in General Art and Design at Liverpool’s City College, and found I could do that alongside some bar work. At 23 or whatever, I was a “mature” student!!! My ‘portfolio’ was a pitiful bunch of dog-eared sketches in a board backed envelope. But I am ever so glad that they took me on. I met some kind and dedicated teachers, and allowed myself to dream that I had found my vocation, and that this was something I could truly be good at. And if I am asked, as I often am, if I have any advice for people starting off in the art world, it’s the same advice I would give to a new yoga student. Get good at falling over and picking yourself up again.”

Sam has created an exclusive collection featuring her 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.
