Sam Broadhurst resides in the Margaret River region of Western Australia and finds inspiration in his immediate environment. Upon completing a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Melbourne, Sam worked intermittently as a Research Assistant at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute, for a period of seventeen years. 

During the late 1990’s he became aware of the important aspects of painting through the teachings of abstract expressionist Yvonne Audette. Learning the relative simplicity and importance of shapes and structure within paintings to convey spatial depth has given him an understanding of works ranging from Rembrant to Cezanne. 

Since moving to Western Australia Sam has pursued his art as a full-time career. During the past ten years he has travelled and painted throughout most parts of WA, soaking up the diversity of the landscape. More recently, he has finished building his granite house to spend time with his family.

In 1991 Sam won the Victorian Artists Society Spring Exhibition and following this won the Campbell Rotary Travel Award in 1992, enabling him to travel throughout Russia and Europe. He has held 18 solo exhibitions in a diverse range of media, including oils, acrylics, watercolours, etchings and pastels.
