Welcome to Red Elephant Creative Tas,

I'm Ash a colour pencil and Pan Pastel artist.

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. My business is inspired by my love of animals and none more so than my Cavoodle Miss Scarlett, although she is no longer by my side she is forever in my heart.

The bond between people and their furry friends is so special, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to help capture
precious memories through pet portraits,

I also enjoy sharing my passion for colour pencils and Pan Pastels with others through classes, and online tutorials,


The art supplies I work with are fine art quality and include: Pan Pastels, Caran D’Ache Luminence and Pablos, Derwent Lightfast, Faber Castell Polychromos, Derwent Drawing pencils, 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.


Space available from the 15th June, 13 spaces remaining in 2021.

but what you make others see.”
