Delighted with the card, so much so I didn't send but framed it to keep for myself!

I was absolutely over the moon with the portrait of my dog Jess. Full of character and really captured her spirit. Arrived in perfect condition, well packaged - now has pride of place in my study. Thanks so much made my day, and think I might be ordering a tote bag with the portrait too!


Sam Parr Art and Illustration

I became a professional artist late compared to some, in my 40s, but art and creativity has always coursed through my veins and informed my thinking.

In the relatively short time I have been pursuing my new career since mid 2010, I have had several illustrations published, been commissioned for book covers and poster art and design, magazine ads and promotional material design. Despite the fact I am really a self taught artist and illustrator, I threw myself in the deep end somewhat creating online magazine editorial and fashion illustration, with little digital and technical skills, but taught myself and began my journey in a quest to make a mark in the illustration world. I feel I have learnt much since those early days! and I was delighted to find that I was recently the subject and strong influence of an AS Level Art student's coursework who had found my work online.

Although I went to art college back in the 80s completing a foundation course in art and design, I really do consider myself a self taught artist, and still learning, for the journey practising and honing ones craft of course never ends.

I have exhibited my work in group and solo shows locally and further afield. I sell online through my etsy, society6, and red bubble shops, and in galleries and art and craft shops in Yorkshire. See more at my website
