Samantha Metcalfe

Sam is a wildlife and children's book illustrator from the Port Macquarie, NSW. 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. 

Graduating with a degree in Natural History Illustration, Sam has continued to develop her skills as an illustrator and has collaborated on projects with musesums, art galleries and businesses in Australia and Canada. She has illustrated two children's picture books including Carmichael's Journey, written by Shelly Fussell (Little Steps Publishing, 2018) for which she was shortlised for the 2019 CBCA Award for New Illustrator, and A Rainbow of Feathers, written by Jenny Gahan (Little Steps Publishing, 2020).
