What we're about

Sam Morris is an award winning British cow artist based in Gloucestershire.

When Sam first painted a cow it was all because she’d met Lucinda who's passion for livestock photography and cattle showmanship was wholly inspiring and when it was her special birthday she knew it was time to dust off her paint brushes and paint Lucinda’s favourite cow "Vanessa".

This was the first time she’d picked up her paint brushes in 20 years, nervous to attempt this portrait and shaking when she finally presented it to her friend. Those nerves were soon allayed by laughter and tears as they both connected and understand that this was a special moment.

That was five years ago and she has had many many special moments since being commissioned to paint important and much loved cattle by hundreds of customers and cow art collectors. Each and every time it's an honour to be asked, a challenge to undertake and joy to present the final painting. Sam also paints fun and stylised cows that are hugely popular and make people smile.

Fancy a day learning and creating a painting with cow artist Sam Morris ? Sam is starting her group painting workshop sessions upstairs at Ell hair studio in Tewkesbury in January.

Each day begins with a demonstration, followed by a painting session with advice and assistance wherever needed. Everyone will take home their own cow canvas!

The workshop will take place on - Sunday 21st January 2018

The cost of the workshop is £75, which includes brushes, paints and canvases.
