Craft Buddy will be joined by world-renowned fantasy artist Anne Stokes at Autumn Fair next month, after signing an exclusive license to use her artwork on its Crystal Art range earlier this year.

Anne will be with the team on stand 6D82 at Autumn Fair to showcase the collaborative Crystal Art licensed designs on the morning of Tuesday 3 September.

Fans and trade retailers alike are invited to meet with Anne and explore the new range, which encompasses Anne’s wide range of trend-led themes, including gothic imagery, romanticism and magical creatures.

 Gary Wadhwani, co-founder, Craft Buddy, says: “We’re incredibly happy to have Anne Stokes present with us at Autumn Fair. Her artwork is distinct and highly recognisable and has gone down amazingly with fans and retailers alike and we are thrilled to have her with us as we showcase the fantastic products.”

“Since the launch of the range earlier this year, we have had a tremendous amount of interest in the product range and we expect the demand for product to continue on this trajectory of growth over the coming months.”


Anne Stokes has a pedigree in the world of fantasy art, having previously illustrated for Wizards of the Coast and Dungeons and Dragons, and has amassed a worldwide following over two decades with her uniquely recognisable style. With over 340,000 Facebook followers and an extensive range of licensed merchandise, her renowned and coveted designs combined with the winning Craft Buddy Crystal Art format allows fan favourite mystical creatures to come to life in a new way.

The products on display will feature the full Anne Stokes Collection Crystal Art range from greeting card kits to large Crystal Art Canvases, 90x65cm in size, which come ready-stretched and mounted on wooden frames for ease of display.
