Illustrator Samantha Metcalfe

Sam is a wildlife illustrator living in the beautiful Mid North Coast of New South Wales. Growing up amidst a family of bushwalkers, bird photographers and artists, it’s no surprise that her love of art and the Australian bush began at an early age. Since graduating from the University of Newcastle with a degree in Natural History Illustration, Sam has continued to develop her skills as a wildlife illustrator. She has collaborated on projects with museums, art galleries and businesses in both Australia and Canada. Sam illustrated Carmichael's Journey: Book 1 in the The Eco-Awareness Series by Shelley Fussell which was shortlisted for The Crichton Award for New Illustrators by The Children's Book Council of Australia in 2019. When not at the drawing desk you’ll often find Sam out in the bush doing what she enjoys most: climbing, camping and outdoor adventuring.
