Welcome to Red Elephant Creative Tas, I'm Ash and this is Miss Scarlett. I am a colour pencil and Pan Pastel artist and Miss Scarlett is my adorable Cavoodle.
Drawing has always been something I have loved to do, originally only in graphite however coloured pencils have opened up a whole new world for me. I began my career as a graphic designer, however my true passion has always been illustration, with my main interests being animals, flowers and portraits.
I run workshops and regular drawing with colour pencil classes, create pet portraits to capture special memories of your furry friends and I have an illustrated stationery range designed for dog lovers (inspired by Miss Scarlett). You can purchase my stationery range from The Crowded Lounge in Latrobe Tasmania.
The art supplies I work with are fine art quality and include: Pan Pastels, Caran D’Ache Luminence, Derwent Lightfast, Faber Castell Polychromos and Derwent Drawing colour pencils on Art Spectrum Colourfix paper and Uart sanded paper. I am a self taught artist however I have been lucky enough to attend workshops with the wonderful pastel artists June Wilson and Lyn Diefenbach.
Why did I call my business Red Elephant? Well I wanted to help people create something unforgettable and elephants never forget.
