As a full-time illustrator, Anne Stokes fills her days with creating and expanding the ranges of her fantasy themed paintings. Besides the wide range of fantasy creatures, she also uses symbolism in her pictures. These symbols help the artwork to convey meaning.
Before working solely on her own art, Anne Stokes worked as a merchandise designer. Her work can even be found on band merchandise of Queen and the Rolling Stones. Anne also worked as a jewellery designer and sculptor. She put her own designs on t-shirts, which are worn by various tv characters and many bands of note.
Anne kept doing what she loved and decided to become a full-time freelance illustrator. She worked on a number of book, game and record products, which included producing concept art and illustrations for Dungeons and Dragons.
