Most people don't know who Sam Toft is. She is an artist based out of England, and her work is very distinct. When I was in high school, I had to do an assignment where we mimicked an artists work, and I chose Sam Toft. Her artwork always caught my eye because there is a running theme in her paintings, there is always a man and almost every time there is a dog. It is never the same dog, but it is always the same man in each painting and he is always doing something, such as going for a walk, riding a bike, or going to the beach. This always intrigued me because I would think it is hard to come up with new ideas when you're painting the same thing over and over again. But somehow Sam Toft seems to do it and its very interesting. Her artwork is quirky and humorous because she always draws the same subject but in different scenarios that aren't quite normal. I just think it is interesting how most artists have different gallery and draw or paint different things, but Sam Toft draw the same person over and over again and sticks to it.
