Ashley Ronning is an illustrator based in a studio in Brunswick, Melbourne. She has been drawing since she could pick up a pencil, and when she was four, cut her own hair to complete a picture of a pony. After studying graphic design, Ashley found her way into freelance design, then set dressing and prop making, and now spends her time in her sunny studio illustrating and risograph printing.
Ashley loves to draw plants, explore anxiety with illustration and comics, and ponder space through her mysterious and sometimes haunting ink drawings. She enjoys working with others to realise their vision through her illustrations, but is also warming up to begin working on her first book. When her pen and ink cartridges are down, she's playing pinball, going to gigs, or having a tinnie in the sun.
