About the Author

Sam Marshall is a printmaker living in rural Northamptonshire with her mini dachshund Miss Marple. She trained at the Slade School of Fine Art for her BA and completed the postgraduate level 'Drawing Year' at the Royal Drawing School where she now teaches. She has a print studio in her garden where she makes all her work – linocuts, drawings and etchings. Sam runs online drawing and printmaking workshops that attract students from all over the world.


Sam Marshall’s new linocut book positively fizzes with the author’s energy and enthusiasm for her subject. Beautifully and extensively illustrated, largely with her own exuberant prints of her life in the English countryside, she carefully nurtures the reader on their own creative journey with a series of practical, well explained and easy to follow linocutting and drawing projects plus plenty of invaluable practical advice relevant both to the complete beginner and to the more experienced practitioner. Sam's focus is very much on empowering the reader to engage confidently with their chosen art medium and I have no doubt that her warm and inclusive approach will charm and enthuse all her readers. I highly recommend it.
