She also makes dolls using recycled fabric and materials.Sam Wilson graduated from Kingston University in 1999. The Violet Mackerel books are the first titles she has illustrated for children. She says, "It has been such fun drawing Violet, she is a gorgeous character with such an adventurous spirit." Sam lives in the Staffordshire countryside.show more
