She currently lives in the rural countryside of the Mendip Hills, just south of Bristol UK. As someone who enjoys observing the world around her and taking in its beautiful and often comical charm, the stunning scenery and wildlife provides the perfect setting for Sam to create her playful, magical artwork.
Sam directs, designs, cuts and hand crafts all of her creations from a range of fine quality G.F Smith papers and has skilled apprentices on hand who are able to get stuck in on larger scale projects. Sam regularly collaborates with talented designers, photographers, videographers and production companies to produce eye-catching, unforgettable work.
Her paper sculptures are used both commercially and artistically, for a variety of different purposes ranging from advertising campaigns, set design, packaging and window displays predominantly in the events, travel + tourism, beauty and food + drink sectors.
She has produced work for a range of clients, including Jetstar, Kiehl’s, Wall Street Journal, The City of Strasbourg, Goldsmiths University of London, Wimbledon Tennis, Mullen Lowe Group, Nokia and Visit Bristol.
Sam’s work was beautiful and precise, with amazing attention to detail and absolute dedication to getting every element perfect! We are so happy with the results and would highly recommend Sam to anyone looking for amazing and eye catching paper sculptures – she is a master!

Sam created an amazing paper pop-up plate of food for a feature in Jetstar Magazine Australia. We were amazed with the result and thought it beautifully illustrated the story on pop-up restaurants and one-off food events. Sam was a joy to work with, very professional, stuck to deadlines and was great with communication. I look forward to working with Sam again in the future.
