Biography: Sam Marriott, British 1932-1997. Mostly in private collections Sam's work was highly sort after while he was alive. Sam was a keen follower of the Fernie Hunt in Leicestershire and would quite often be seen early in the morning sketching away. Sam Studied with John Kenny alongside Neil Cawthorne, he only had a few exhibitions and hardly promoted his pictures as he was forever critical of his own work. His ability to catch full blooded life in his oils was second to none and his beautiful Seago style landscapes are tremendously pleasing.
