Meet Ashley Monteil...a New Jersey-based artist, illustrator, and graphic designer.
I am super excited to bring you her story because as you know, this season is all about imagination and creativity. If you've been following our show, you also know that I love to give exposure to young artists.
I had the pleasure of collaborating with Ashley on my recent children's book, Randle Finds His Light (due to be released sometime in July...go to lgrahamauthor.com to get updates!!) I needed an illustrator, wanted to support and give an up-and-coming artist a chance, and through my local college, was able to connect.
You will hear all about our journey of the challenges and joys of the creative process. My need to create characters, vision and storyline and her need to bring those images to paper while maintaining her art form and remaining true to her style. We talk about the ups, the downs, and the breakthroughs that in the end, made it all worthwhile.
Ashley works in fine and digital art, and while much of her artwork focuses on an ethereal theme that have a storylike quality, she also has a passion for graphic design. She brings beauty into functionality and purpose.
I am so proud of her as she recently graduated from her class with the highest honors, Summa Cum Laude! She has an amazingly bright future and is currently in the process of moving to Portland Maine to pursue the next leg of her creative journey a. t the Maine College of Art.
She is available for hire on a project-by-project basis and can be reached:
