Sam is a wildlife and children's book illustrator from the Port Macquarie, NSW. Growing up amidst a family of bushwalkers, bird photographers and artists, it's no surprise that her love of art and the Australian bush began at an early age.
Since graduating from the University of Newcastle with a degree in Natural History Illustration, Sam has continued to develop her skills as a wildlife illustrator. She has collaborated on projects with Musesums, Art Galleries and businesses in both Australia and Canada. Her first illustrated book, Carmichael's Journey, was recently shortlisted for the 2019 CBCA Award for New Illustrator.
