Hello! I'm Sam.

I'm a multi-disciplinary artist, writer and speaker, currently based in Plymouth.

I'm interested in post-internet confusion, systemic unresolved trauma, and the haunted landscapes of the South West. My practice draws inspiration from literature, structural cinema and video games.

Please contact me if you have any questions :)
