CCChat, Etsy Made Local, Xmas

Another busy month! Thanks to Ryan McLeod for giving me the chance to discuss Fun A Day Dundee, my own art practice, and Dundee’s culture on the Creative Chit Chat podcast this month. It was fun to go through some thoughts as well as advertising FADD, as we come to the end of the year…

Split Screen / Portraits / Christmas

This year’s been great for connecting with local artists, makers and creatives. I’m enjoying new challenges, and hoping to see Fun A Day Dundee evolve in the next two years. I am also working as an assistant in schools (primary) which is exciting, fun, challenging and creative. Loving the change in my part time work….

Inktober & Mini Paintings

Inktober! After it slipped by me the past two years, I have finally managed to get a hold of this project and take part. Create an ink drawing every day in October and post online. Simple! And similar to the Fun A Day Dundee concept, which I’m used to. It’s nice to draw with ink, and…

Fall Fair, Podcast, & Etsy Local

  I’ve had a crazy busy past few months in my personal and business life, but in so many good ways! One small change… my name is now Samantha Sherriff, although you can still find all my art through Sam Baxter Art! 😀 First off, I got to be a guest on a lovely, local…

New Work – August 18

More details on new work/projects in the next couple of weeks, but for now, here’s a selection of paintings i made this month! One of my favourite animals; the fox,…

I look forward to seeing the outcome through experimentation! Wood burned fox, with acrylic paint and posca pens on wood. 2. More colourful expressive paintings. This month…

Boxing Hares Commission

My latest commission was something new and fun to produce. A painting of two hares boxing. Prior to this commission I have been working in coloured pencil for the majority of my work, and at the same time, as I was working on this very commission, I began my expressive, colourful paintings as well as…

May 2018 – Plant Power, Expressive paintings & Brooches.

Expressive paintings. For a long time I’ve enjoyed doodling and playing with acrylics. I enjoy the process, but I have never quite gotten the desired results. I love expressive paintings, illustrative, bright colourful art, and have recently felt compelled to fill a canvas with natural markings, shapes, and colours. I feel satisfied and happy with…

April 2018

Happy to share that Fun A Day Dundee 2018 was a huge success, and this year it has really taken off! Highest numbers, and great response all round with many more saying they’ll be getting involved next year. I have enjoyed getting creative with the exhibition side this year, and have many ideas for the…

Artist Interview

Recently I was asked to compose some information about my art practice, experiences and any advice to share for young people interested in a career in the arts. It was nice reflecting over some moments over the past few years, so I thought I’d share it here! Hello! My name is Sam Baxter, and I…
