Sam Parr is an artist and illustrator living and working in Sheffield. Educated at Plymouth Art College (Foundation Course in Art) the University of Portsmouth, (B.A. Hons Cultural Studies) but is mostly a self taught artist.

After a period of over 25 years since art school days diverting into more academic studies, various non creative roles and the legal advice sector, just about 4 years ago I decided to return to my first love - of art - as a vocation and profession. The urge to create although often stifled, has never gone away and here I am, back in the fold!

I work in many styles - because my initial training was back in the 80s, my work is not enormously 'techy' and my images generally start with a peice of paper, pens, and pencils. I am no Luddite however, I am pretty computer literate and I do utilise modern computer tools to enhance and develop my images. As I've returned to the illustration and art field having started up as a freelance only recently, my eyes have been opened to how much has changed and developed. I am loving the fact that computers can help to create some truly magnificent work, and I would love to develop my skills further in this area. I'm largely self taught thus far but always learning!

I am available for commissions, illustrations, design work, in fact most design and illustration projects.
