Lo­ca­tion: US Web: www.ash­lylovett.com Email: alovett@ash­lylovett.com me­dia: Chalk pas­tels Ashly likes to cre­ate art­work in the hor­ror and fan­tasy genre, of­ten with an un­der­tone of dark ro­man­ti­cism. “My goal is to use the char­ac­ter’s eyes to re­ally en­gage the viewer,” she says.

Hav­ing grad­u­ated with a BA in il­lus­tra­tion at Rin­gling Col­lege of Art and De­sign, Ashly’s first job as an artist was to cre­ate char­ac­ters for baby prod­ucts. “Over time I re­alised I was un­happy with my job and ap­plied to John English’s on­line Ap­plied Arts Pro­gram to re­de­velop my port­fo­lio,” Ashly re­veals. “With the right di­rec­tion, I em­braced my love of chalk pas­tels and por­trai­ture. Since then I’ve been sell­ing work in gal­leries and to col­lec­tors.”
