Samantha Ann Barnes, was born at Winchester, Hampshire in 1971. In 1994 she graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in textile, illustration and humanities and has been a practising artist ever since, with an extended break to open her own gallery ‘The Pond’ on Clapham Common in South London.

As Samantha Barnes, she married in London in 2004, Carl P. C. Stickley and they have two children. An artist whose work is all about her love of drawing, animals in particular, born with a quick drawing hand and a large sense of humour, she has had a solo show in Harrods and Samantha sells her work both as prints and originals. She had her studio at 3 Ipswich Road, Woodbridge, Suffolk, where she joined the team at Art Safari Ltd where, as a director, she organises fabulous art events in and around Woodbridge & Suffolk. She exhibits at ‘Art on the Prom’ at Felixstowe, Suffolk.
