Inspired by culture, travel and Mother Nature, a lot of Sam’s work encapsulates the beauty and serenity that the natural world and beyond has to offer. Her vast paper landscapes depict scenes from mountain peaks, fairytale wonderland right down to the deepest ocean beds and darkest caves.

Most of her work is built up out of patterned / textured card and paper. She then photographs, edits and arranges the work in photoshop to create the finished piece.

Sam’s illustrated shoes were originally a fun doodling experiment, but after a few were completed they began to gain a lot of interest. This is what prompted her decision to set up Loco Shoes, a side project which would enable her to experiment with and diversify her illustration style.

Since she started, she’s had orders from all around the world and the shoes have received critical acclaim in magazines as well as on blogs and networking sites.
