Sam Miles - Author and Designer, Bristol
Samantha founded the design company A Thousand Yellow Daisies in 2016, which focuses primarily on pattern design and illustrative design. In Collaboration was then founded in 2018, which supports small businesses to gain new opportunities, grow and succeed through mutual benefits.
Samantha has always had a love of creating stories, ever since she was a little girl inventing stories from a list of animals and common objects given by her parents every bedtime. This developed into writing short stories through Samantha’s teenage years, usually based on fun and caring characters. The chance to develop a story focused on working together to make a difference was an exciting opportunity. Working with a talented local illustrator collaboratively, while educating children in a fun and exciting way has been a lifelong dream for Samantha.
