My name is Stephanie Stasiuk Monk but you can call me Stas. I'm a freelance illustrator living in the Pacific Northwest who practices in both digital and traditional mediums. I derive much of the inspiration for my art from nature, and I love drawing animals, skulls, flowers, humanoid characters. In 2022 I illustrated my first book cover, and I hope to be able to illustrate more commercial artworks such as posters and album covers.

For my digital artwork I use Adobe Photoshop as my drawing software, and I draw with a Wacom Cintiq 22. I spent most of my digital art career using a Wacom Intuos, but recently upgraded to the pen display option and I don't think I could ever go back. 


For my canvas paintings I work in acrylic, and for my artwork on paper I used just about anything I can get my hands on. I experiment with watercolour, pencil crayon, paint pens, spray paint, oil pastels, chalk pastels, and felts. However, my favourite media for paper artwork would have to be Pigma Micron ink pens.
