"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.
