Hello! My name is Ashley and I’m a Chicago-based illustrator. I graduated from Columbia College Chicago in 2009.

I love to draw animals and plants. I’m passionate about all things nature and wildlife and I’m a casual bird-watcher. I have no pets, but my home is overrun with plants (my favorite is a dwarf lime tree named Eric). I’m always looking to learn new things and I’m currently studying French (on Tuesdays).

I’m a part of the in-house design team at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
