Sam Garvey


Sam can usually be found surrounded by tall stacks of decorative paper and even taller stacks of books. She loves stories of all kinds - illustrated, animated, or otherwise - but has a special place in her heart for comics. Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, she has worked editorial, illustrative, and design jobs in the publishing industry. Her work has been featured in The Graphic Canon of Children’s Literature, the Beyond II comics anthology, and various other publications.
Sam is currently a full-time freelance illustrator, with a focus on creating portraits and illustrations with cut paper.
