Sam Wilson is a Cotswolds based artist, inspired by the English countryside. She captures the rural villages and country walks around where her studio is based, into beautiful drawings and linocut prints. Sam later, turns her artwork into repeat patterns, to use in her fabric collection.
“My work is not literally drawn from the landscape but inspired by it. I walk almost every day and am always taking notes for ideas for a new drawing or print. I might take a woodland, a plant or a bird I have seen as a starting point and build up a picture around it, from sketches I have made on my walks, so the work is imagined but based on real places.”
Sam studied fine art at Cheltenham Art College followed by
an MA in illustration & design at Kingston University. She
was a freelance illustrator for 10 years before launching her
own brand in 2016. Alongside her artwork and fabrics, she
also designs homewares and pottery and is stocked in many
galleries, interiors and lifestyle stores through the UK. You

Campden & Stow on The Wold. See website for full details.
