Ashley Halsey

I make art, design books and think creatively.

Job Artist and graphic designer

Lives In Old Port, Portland

I’m a designer, illustrator, and painter. I moved to Portland after working as a book designer in New York City for over six years, first on cookbooks and lifestyle books at HarperCollins and then on children’s books at Macmillan. In Maine, I am continuing to pursue my love of book design, but also taking more time for my artwork.

I am excited for the opportunity to be closer to nature in Maine, which is a huge source of inspiration for my art. I love seeing the changing colors of the landscape and all the little details of the natural world. I like bringing attention to these things while promoting conservation and environmental awareness through my artwork. What I love doing most is work that makes a positive impact in the world, regardless of whether that might be illustration, design, or both!

When I'm not making art I like to be outside horseback riding, running, hiking, kayaking or any other number of activities where I can enjoy nature. If I can't be outside I like to read, bake and pursue other crafty things.
