Joaquín Sorolla is a much loved Spanish painter, and many people recommended that I visit the Sorolla Museum during my trip to Madrid. I'm so pleased I did as the museum was an absolute delight. The museum is actually his old house and it was fascinating to see the paintings in situ, where they would have been displayed during his life. The small garden at the front of the house was absolutely beautiful , the soft yellow walls were glowing in the autumn light. I spent a wonderful couple of hours drawing there. As is often the case, people ask to take my photo whilst I'm drawing. I always agree and ask if they would take one for me too, you can see me drawing in the following photo.
Handmade with Love
My artwork is handprinted with love from my colourful studio in the heart of rural England and shipped to customers worldwide.
Wherever possible I upcycle and reuse packaging materials to help our planet and keep delivery costs to the customer low.
My name is Sam, I'm a printmaker working from my studio in rural Northamptonshire. I've recently left London after 22 years and am now enjoying the fresh air, open skies and wildlife of my new life in the country. Miss Marple my ever faithful mini dachshund loves it too!
When I'm not making work/ running workshops / coaching from my studio then I'm travelling around the UK and Europe with my sketchbook.
