“I've come a long way since I first started. Now my pictures have a lot of detail in them.”
Londoner Sam Jevon wasn’t always an artist. In fact, before a car accident in 2006 which saw her sustain a severe brain injury, she had little interest in drawing – “all I could draw were matchstick men”.
Seven years ago when Sam became a member of Headway East London, she started drawing more regularly in their art studio. What slowly emerged was a very distinct style of illustration. Using black pens in varying thicknesses, she would challenge herself by drawing images based on pictures with huge amounts of detail in them.
The result today? A collection of intricate black and white works that capture people, places and objects in minute detail.
“I'm very proud of what I have achieved. Art has given me a lot of confidence and a lot of patience. My art gives me a sense of achievement - you can do something you never knew you could do.”
A selection of Sam’s original works are for sale at Outpost, framed and ready to take home. A number of limited edition prints of further works will also be available to purchase.
