Chadwick, Sam

Samuel (Sam) Chadwick (1902 - 1992) was born in Yorkshire and worked as an apprentice at the printing firm, Alf Cookes, before setting up his own studio in Wade Lane, Leeds.


He worked as a commercial artist, employing a number of artists to design and produce advertisement pictures and food labels, as required. 


Chadwick was also a keen photographer and member of the Leeds Camera Club and on the committee of the Yorkshire Photographic Union.


Chadwick visited the Isle of Arran a number of times during the 1970s and led painting classes there. He worked in a ‘wet brush’ watercolour style, as well as oils.
