My name is Heidi Stokes, and i am an artist living and working in London. I completed an MA in fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London in 2001 and i work in digital media, primarily animation using adobe flash and illustrator extensively. My films have been shown internationally and nationally and most recently selected for prestigious selections such as Animacall 2011 ( The contemporary art centre in Thessaliniki, Greece), and the ColgneOFF video art film festival. I have also designed posters, logos and other bits of digital illustrator work and flash based content, if you are at all interested please feel free to view my website, to get a sense of my skills and style. My areas of proficiency are adobe Illustrator/Photoshop/Flash and Indesign. I have also been employed over the last six years as a lecturer at some of the most prestigious art colleges in the country, such as Central St Martins and London College of Fashion teaching digital imagery.
