Coloured Pencils, Graphite and Watercolour
Samantha is a Bristol based Artist, working from her home studio in Westbury on Trym.
Samantha has worked in a variety of mediums including watercolours and acrylic, but has most recently been working in oil and wax based coloured pencils, as she loves the level of detail that can be achieved by building up the layers to capture texture and depth of colour.
Samantha creates detailed pet portraits in either coloured pencils or graphite. Her aim is not only to capture a true likeness of the animal but also the personality and character of each beloved pet.
As an animal lover she is inspired by the wildlife that can be found in Bristol's gardens and open spaces. Her recent 'On your doorstep' collection features a variety of wildlife that can be see from her kitchen window including a Badger, Fox, Hedgehog and many garden birds.
Samantha has recently come back to watercolours again and has been painting botanicals as well as wildlife, combining the techniques she has learnt using coloured pencils and applying them to watercolour.
