About Samantha

I am a mixed media textile artist who creates framed and sculptural pieces usually by manipulating and stitching contrasting materials. 

My work is inspired by the fascinating diversity, beauty and quirkiness of the World, particularly the colour, movement and incredible shapes found in the fragile gardens of shallow seas. The tactile act of construction informs all my pieces. I hope they make you smile.
