Hi! I’m Samantha Stokes, a designer and illustrator living in the South Island of New Zealand who loves making beautiful things and going on adventures, preferably at the same time. I draw and design, take photos, snowboard, climb, kitesurf and hike. I value lightheartedness, laughter and creating beautiful things. Celebrating hand processes, imperfection, nature and the everyday in my illustration, I aim to spark interest and create smiles. Born in Zimbabwe and currently in the South of New Zealand after spending 2014 in Bozeman, Montana, and some of 2016 traveling Italy (and a few other parts of Europe by bicycle). I recently finished my Bachelor of Graphic Design (Hons, First Class) at Massey University's College of Creative Arts (CoCA) in Wellington.
