Sam Groenestyn – a name worth remembering how to spell


Hi all, my apologies for the extended radio silence. I’d like to excuse myself by saying I was out of the country but heck, that already seems like a lifetime ago and also, the internet does seem to be international. Nell’s been showing us up by posting all the way from the land that gave us Eurovision. (congrats Sweden)

Aaaanyway, without further ado, I’d like to present Sam G – good friend and amazing artist.

This little munchkin is a well traveled soul. She seems to draw much of her inspiration from her travels but perhaps she enjoys coming back to Brisbane as much as I do because I feel a strong  affinity to her works that remind me of home.

This post is waaay overdue but it now happens to come at the perfect time as Sam is having her first solo show!

Cute and helpful directions to the venue courtesy of Sam:
Kichi-Ba Tea House is run by the very gracious Michelle, and it’s the adorable little shop you can see from Taringa Station, Brisbane. Hop on the train, or park in the nearby commuter parking on the evening.”

To give you a taste of her work in preparation for her show, here’s some of my favourites. Check out her website for the rest or her blog to get some insight on the girl that is Sam G.

Reminds me a bit of the opening creds for Juno :)
