Sam Toft

Sam Toft is a Sussex based artist who can often be found walking along the beach in Brighton or Hove with her family and dogs.

She has created an entire imaginary world for her characters, Ernest Hemmingway Mustard, his wife Violet and their dog Doris.

Many of Sam's art works feature these characters. Ernest is a professional, tuneless hummer and part-time hurricane predictor from Brighton and Hove. Doris is a grumpy and rather portly Jack Russell terrier. They all three live in a not-so-damp basement flat.

Sam works in oil pastels and coloured inks to show us their adventures. She uses proper artists' materials along with kitchen towels, items of cutlery, steel pen nibs, pencil dust, old tooth brushes and her own finger and thumbs technique.
