Boo Designs Artists
Innovative, original art and design can renew, refresh, inspire our lives, in our homes, furnishings, our work, and in our hobbies and social life. When we want to buy something new or attractive, it also has to be available within our budget. This is what we try to do, from scratch, whether it is contemporary, abstract, colourful imagery, on canvas, silk, cotton, glass or as mixed media. With our own poetry and song lyrics, if desired.
Sam has had his Oils Paintings shown and sold in exhibitions in Nottingham and Burton-on Trent, his silk designs in Pyramid York. His Oils, Acrylics, Silk, and Mixed Media in Booracum in York.
His illustrations and Designs have been produced as Greeting Card designs for the original Nimbus Greeting Card Distribution Company. His quirky children’s illustrations for a children’s story book. Illustrative designs of the Zodiac for an Astrologer in Derby, flowers for Stationery; artwork for private commissions for birthdays and anniversaries.
This is our world of work and creativity. We hope that you will choose, license, buy, or commission a piece of work from us. We believe in variety; independent small business’s, like little ships, swift and flexible, turning quickly to capture the wind in their sails.
Sam, Ken, and Damson.

We work across several fields of creativity and design. We have a philosophy that believes in working as part of a widespread economy that involves as many people participating and earning as possible, rather than just a few earning mega amounts while others remain on the outside.
We understand that while working toward such a world, we have to take account of how things are now and that there are lots of charities, individuals and organisations working exclusively to address all the difficulties many people everywhere already face. For this reason, we welcome projects from good causes and charities and try to do as much work as we can for them at very low costs.
We hope that you will choose to give work to us at Boo Art & Music for your projects and we look forward to working with you very soon.
Please take some time to look through the samples on our various pages. These show our wide ranging creative skills and personal ability to satisfy your needs and requirements, however original and challenging.
