Living by the sea in Brighton with her two delightful dogs, Sam Toft enjoys making her living from drawing her world of imaginary friends. She never intended to be an artist. She had dreams of becoming a Gymnast, but after spending time in countless jobs and completing a Degree in Business Studies, Sam moved to Liverpool with her sister to attend a BTEC in General Art and Design. She had finally found her vocation! Today in her seaside studio with only her dogs and BBC's Radio 4 for company, Sam's imagination runs free, and her dear Mr Mustard and friends come to life. Sam also likes to write and sculpt, recently creating a whole cast of puppets from her popular characters.
