Hello!

"My goal for every illustration is to use the character's eyes to really engage the viewer. That is, by far, my favorite challenge. My work is of the horror and fantasy genre, often with a dark romanticism undertone and Pre-Raphaelite influence. My very first influences were Monet, Sargent, Sorolla, and Jenny Saville. Some of my present day favorite artists include Ed Kinsella, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Rovina Cai, Sam Webber, along with George Pratt, my first Illustration teacher in college.” 

Ashly is a freelance illustrator and fine artist who works primarily with chalk pastel on BFK Rives paper and has a BA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design.

Hobbies

Current Fav TV Shows: The Walking Dead, Supernatural, Westworld, Game of Thrones, and The Big Bang Theory. I'm working my way to Strange Things.

Other Loves: Reading! Here is a list of my all time favorites. I'm a big fan of cooking and throwing Walking Dead premier parties. I enjoy playing video games and hiking with my older brother, building houses in the Sims 4, fishing, traveling, and discovering new delicious resturants with my husband, Matthew.
