Samantha Hughes

Sam delights in making mischief, of one kind and another. She writes and illustrates in a sunny studio in Fremantle, surrounded by colour and cats. Sam has worked across Western Australia creating paintings, community artworks and books filled with magic and wild adventures. Her artwork is fuelled by sugar and reflects the joyous colour play, and serious thinking, of childhood. Colour is her second language. She has recently returned to acrylics and is relishing making big expensive marks on canvas. “When colours are vibrating together on the page, making electricity together, that is when I am at my happiest.”
