Sam Toft

One of our favourites here at the gallery, it is difficult to do anything but smile when you encounter Sam Toft's artwork.

Sam Toft's paintings show scenes of the day to day lives of a set of imagined characters who live by the coast – Mr Ernest Hemmingway Mustard, his wife Violet, their Jack Russell Doris and their friends and acquaintances, often animals. Sam shares their stories which are embedded with a humour and familiarity to which we can all relate in some way.

Based in Brighton, Sam describes how it took her some time to find her vocation, 'I had worked hard at a lot of different things and really could not settle with any. So when I found myself inspired to make a living from art, I approached it in the same way I approach most things, with enthusiasm and resilience'

This vocation was realised when Sam moved to Liverpool and enrolled on a Btec course in general art. Her time there was spent completely immersed in learning, creating and developing her own distinctive artistic style. Sam Toft's original art compositions are executed with layers of oil pastel, ink washes and various mark-making techniques to achieve the textures and colours that we associate with those familiar coastal towns.

Sincere, light-hearted and timeless, we always have a range of much sought-after Sam Toft framed prints here at the gallery.
