Samuel studied Fine Art at the University of Chichester and now works in the area as an art instructor for adults with learning disabilities. Samuel describes himself as a mixed media artist and represents the human form in his work, but toys with scale and proportions, he never looks for a true or perfect figure. “People are not perfect so why depict them as perfect”. He is concerned with capturing emotion or feeling. The work speaks strongly of his direct engagement with sociable and uninhibited environments.

In his most recent work Samuel uses photography, he then redraws the scene from a combination of memories and photographs working quickly to capture the moment. His influences include Henri Matisse, Toulouse Lautrec and Pablo Picasso.
