Samantha Luotonen is a freelance illustrator specializing in colored pencil drawings. She is very interested in nature's beauty and simplicity, and highlighting that beauty is the focus of all of her work.
Originally from the East side of the state, she received her BFA in Illustration from Kendall College of Art and Design in 2015. Samantha now lives and works in Northern Michigan. She spends her time bringing portraits to life for clients and finding beauty in something as simple as a piece of fruit to something as complex as fur and feathers.
In her free time she enjoys cooking, kayaking, exploring breweries and wineries, and most of all spending time with her fiance Joe and their three cats and dog.
