Sam Walsh Art – An Animal Passion both Fleece and Fur


Hello, my name is Sam and I am a self taught artist based in the West Country.


For as long as I can remember I have sketched and loved painting. I completely lose track of time when

I have a paintbrush in my hand as I get utterly involved in the image I am working to create.


I am passionate about animals and strive to capture the character of an animal as accurately and

sympathetically as I can. Getting the eyes right is very important and I work hard to achieve this.

 I work in both acrylics and watercolours (sometimes both in the same painting).

Recently I have been creating a number of paintings of hares.

I am fascinated by the intricacies of their markings and the range of colours in their fur.

I am also a bit obsessed with alpacas and sheep.


Generally I work to A4 or A3 size to keep it simple but I have also painted larger images.

My work is available on artist paper, canvas, canvas board and as prints.

Prints are professional archival prints on heavy weight artist quality papers.


I work from photographs so if you have a picture of a special animal companion that you would like me

to paint for you please get in touch.


Commissions from £95. Mounted prints from £30


If you would like to find out more please get in touch by using the contact page or give me a call.

If I don’t answer I am probably covered in paint so please leave a message.
