Samantha Campbell is a published Children's Book Illustrator & Graphic Designer based in Alice Springs, Northern Territory.
Samantha is descended from the Dagoman people from Katherine and as a child lived in remote Aboriginal communities across the Top End. Samantha studied Graphic Design in Melbourne in 2013 and worked as a freelance Graphic Designer for four years before illustrating her first children's book Alfred's War, written by Rachel Bin Salleh (Alfred's War was later shortlisted for two literary awards). Since then, she has become hooked on illustrating children's books, and continues to work as a Graphic Designer and illustrator for Coolamon Creative, a creative services business she owns and operates with her sister, Gabrielle Fry.
Samantha enjoys illustrating with a range of different mediums in many styles and is currently illustrating her tenth children's book.
