Sam Toft lives in a tall thin winky wonky house and works from her studio by the sea in Brighton. She did not always want to be an artist. In fact she really wanted to work in a Post Office or be an amazing Gymnast. But in the absence of a suitable circus to run away with she thought she’d give it a go with her pictures
Like I mentioned earlier, I am quite good at a few things, and not brilliant at any. So when I found myself inspired to make a living from drawing pictures, I approached it in the same way I approach most things. With enthusiasm and resilience. I can be single minded and methodical when working towards a goal. Obsessive some might say!
I moved from London up to live with my sister, and managed to enrol on a part-time BTEC in General Art and Design at Liverpool’s City College, and found I could do that alongside some bar work. At 23 or whatever, I was a “mature” student!!! My ‘portfolio’ was a pitiful bunch of dog-eared sketches in a board backed envelope. But I am ever so glad that they took me on.
Never a day goes by when I do not thank my lucky stars for what I do. I see myself as an incredibly fortunate person. I make my living from drawing a whole bunch of my imaginary friends. I have a lovely home, plenty of good (real!) friends, two gorgeous dogs, a healthy mind (!) and body, and I am a grateful person. In a way it has come full circle. My imagination was something that perhaps set me apart as a child. I found it hard to make friends, and spent so many years inventing them instead!
