My name is Samantha Villazaez
I am an artist, illustrator, and designer raised in San Antonio, Texas and completed my BFA in Illustration at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. In 2018, I started freelancing, illustrating family portraits and designing several graphic design projects for the non profit organization, VIA CDC and in 2021, I worked as an artist for the home department in Kohl’s. My work involves playing with shape, color and style and I like to play around with any media that comes my way but mainly work with watercolor paints, markers and digital. I am dedicated to working with print illustrations, pattern making and pattern drafting but also have an interest in storytelling and character design.
I am currently based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
