Sam Barnes dog paintings

Personalised Dog Portraits in Pastel or Pencil

                                                  the studio

 The artist trained at Sir John Cass opposite the

Whitechapel Art Gallery initially doing a foundation course and the following

 year to do a three year degree course at the Central School of Art in Fine Art which

 involved painting, drawing, printmaking and art history.

After working for a brief spell in a Gallery and then for a City finance company she

then ran her own Gallery in Sussex buying and selling 19th Century paintings.

Painting became more of a hobby as she worked for 20 years as a gallery owner

and picture dealer exhibiting at antiques fairs around the country.

Sam finally returned to painting and drawing full time, initially as fund raising

exercises and still occasionally offers portrait vouchers for prizes at Dog Rescues.

She lives in Sussex with her husband Brett and their two terriers working from her

studio at home.
