Sam’s big­gest in­flu­ences lie in the art that he grew up with, from play­ing games and read­ing comics: cre­ated by Brom, Frank Frazetta and Todd McFarlane.

“Early on I worked dig­i­tally," he says, “but once I delved into tra­di­tional oil paint­ing, I knew I’d found my home. The qual­ity of my work took a big jump.”

When he’s do­ing his own thing, his favourite sub­ject is Norse Lore. “By paint­ing the myths of north­ern Europe, I con­nect to some­thing older and greater than my­self. There are so many great sto­ries that I’m sure I’ll paint the gods and god­desses for the rest of my life.”
