I’m Stacey Combs, AKA stace of spades, a freelance artist + illustrator living in South Minneapolis. I enjoy good food, music, travel, and long walks on the beach (and MN State Park Trails). Most of the time I work while listening to classical renditions of video game soundtracks because it calms me (and I’m a huge lover of games).
I work primarily with watercolor, gouache, and ink, illustrating a wide variety of subjects. In my personal work, I strive to balance my nerdiness & pop culture nostalgia with activism, knowing both have a role in making the world a better place.
