paint animals, flowers and most recently portraits.
Her work is created using the traditional techniques of Indian painting. Samantha also works
as a designer, being commissioned to create beautiful designs for ceramics, fabric, glassware,

Her knowledge of Indian art has lead to Samantha passing on her knowledge through her teaching.


Throughout samantha’s career there has been a close involvement with design.
Her first commission was for a colourful set of greetings cards for Ikea. Leading on from this , Samantha was commissioned by Highgrove Enterprises, to create a decorative range of ceramics based on HRH The Prince Of Wales’s rare breed hens, this was called “The Highrove Hen “. Later working in conjunction with Burleigh Potteries and Highgrove , Samantha designed a delicate range of floral ceramics to celebrate the planting of 60 wildflower meadows. In 2010, the Elephant charity approached Samantha to work on a project to support the Asian elephant in the wild.
Decorating 2 life size baby fibreglass elephants, her work could be seen as part of a 250 strong parade of painted elephants around London. Samantha also takes private commissions for animal and people portraits.
