Going Potty with Sam
Hi, due to the current situation with Corona virus all our events on our page are currently either cancelled or postponed. However, I am still able to fulfill online orders as our couriers continue to operate so If you see something in my Gallery or shop that you would like just drop me a message. For the time being I will leave the events on here with their original dates and as soon as we have official notification of new confirmed dates I will update my website. I hope you are all safe and well and this won't be forever, we will all be back - bigger, better and stronger than ever !!! Look after yourselves, love Sam xxxxx
Welcome to my Potty website
I started painting pots & pebbles for fun whilst recovering from my treatment for Breast Cancer. I then decided to paint quite a lot and sell them to help raise money for Breast Cancer Care. I sold so many at our Annual Fundraising BBQ and took orders for many more. Over the past 5 years we have managed to raise nearly £8000 which has been donated to Breast Cancer Care, Look Good Feel Better and also the Aurora Well Being Centre .
I now also produce Framed Dictionary & Music Prints of all your favourite characters. If you don't see what you are looking for on my website please just ask. I can do any characters so if you don't see who you are looking for or have your own ideas just message or call me.
I am always painting new designs, I'm up for trying out requests so ask away. I sell hand painted Terracotta pots & also turn plant pots into Wind chimes, I have been known to create Light houses and other fun items like my Colander Chime hanging baskets. My pots are varnished in waterproof yacht varnish so can stand up to our lovely British weather. I also paint stones and will be sharing pictures of new designs as I paint them.

So a bit about me. I am married with two sons, Jamie who is 20 & Alex who is 10. I have been married to Gaz for 8 years and we live in Handforth with our cat Dash. I have always been quite Arty, it was really the only thing I was good at when I was at school. I always wanted to find something creative to turn my artistic side to but just had never found the right match for me.
After being diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2013 I stopped working but once all of the treatment had ended I was left at a loose end, not able to go back to work but wanting to occupy myself. I started painting the Terracotta pots in my garden and as my friends saw them they started asking if I could paint some for them. We then held a charity BBQ to support Breast Cancer Care and I sold a lot of my work to raise money. So, that is how this all started. Now every shelf, flat space & spare bit of floor space is covered in pots & pebbles and I have taken over Gaz's 'Man Cave' with my stock. Our newly aquired shed & kitchen table are now my work spaces and the floor underneath is now decorated with paint splashes along with most of my clothes!
I am always looking for new ideas and designs to paint and now my wonderful talented son has created this website for me I can now keep you all up to date with my work. I will be updating and adding more pictures to my Gallery so keep checking in.
