You found me… I’m Ashley, an artist and illustrator based in a small town on the edge of the Cotswolds in the UK. I didn’t start off here, though.
I sprang into the world in London and made my way to being a Cotswolds Artist by the route of an intro to art on a TV show painting with Jan Pienkowski (of Fungus the Bogeyman fame!) at about aged 10 years old, I painted a green leopard, apparently… A spell at Central St Martin’s College of Art & Design came later, then onto time behind the spine and screen at Penguin Books and ended up paddling in the Digital sea at Brighton. So what now?
Now I’m picking up the pen, brush, pencil again and have been creating a scene, or two and I am loving it.
I have been drawn to using gorgeous acrylic inks on luscious heavy watercolour paper recently, detailing the nature around us and I’ve been lucky enough to create some wonderful commissions that I’ve also replicated as prints.
Please do say hello and drop by some of my social media channels too, I add new designs all the time and if you would like to commission artwork for you, a gift, for your office space you can get me on email@example.com
