Collection: Sam Toft

Ernest Hemingway Mustard lives in a not-so-damp basement flat with Violet, his dear lady wife and Doris, the portly Jack Russell Terrier. Sam Toft (their official picture maker) has created an imaginary world based on her hometown of Brighton, where they live a life of simple pleasures in faded ice-cream colours. A place where kindness and generosity are the norms, the wind is always there to blow away the cobwebs, and fish really do ride on bicycles. "The world of Mustard with its old-fashioned values and a strong sense of whimsy is real comfort in these unpredictable times. I am a firm believer that accepting what is, feeling the feelings without getting caught up in them, and sharing out the rose-tinted spectacles is the best way to proceed". Sam Toft lives in an old white house by the sea with her two dogs Betty and Stan.
