My Bio
Hello there everyone :) My name is Anne Stokes and I work as a freelance illustrator. My artwork has been used on many products including books, games, t-shirts, posters, jigsaws, sculptures, greetings cards and jewellery. I love the world of fantasy and being able to share my ideas and characters with other people through my art.

I post here on DA under the name Ironshod. Thats is a long story, but it seemed like a good idea at the time and now I'm kind of stuck with it ;)

I hope you will enjoy looking at some of the artwork in my gallery. DA is a great place with so many other creative and interesting people to talk with. Sometimes I do get rather a lot of messages and I am afraid I can't answer then all, as then I will have no time to paint new pictures! I do appreciate everyone who takes the time to comment.

Current Residence: UK
Favourite style of art: Fantasy
Personal Quote: Carpe diem - seize the day

You're probably well aware of this, but your work is being sold by hundreds or even thousands of Chinese sellers on Amazon, Wish, Aliexpress, usual with random-ass titles like just "dragon art" or similar.

Do you know that a color by number app is using some of your work?

I've only just found out you're on DA!! I LOVE your art! I have your art up all over my walls! I have calendars, jewellery, coasters (the list goes on!) with your art on! I've admired your work for as long as I can remember, the fantasy genre has been one that I've ALWAYS been in love with and your art has inspired me to start my own fantasy art journey! (I especially love your unicorn pieces!)

I can't put into words how much I love your work and how much it's inspired me! Your art is INCREDIBLE! :happybounce:

Oh my goodness. THE Anne Stokes?!
I have so many works of yours as posters and even as bed sheet! Following immediately.... that is too cool.
Oh my god, it's actually you. Your art is amazing and I've always admired it. Never thought I'd see you here on deviant art :D
You’re an amazing artist.

Hope you're well, haven't seen anything from you in quite some time. Your artworks are amazing
