Ashlee Griffiths Colour Pencil Artist & Tutor


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,

Predominately I am a colour pencil artist and I enjoy sharing my passion for colour pencils with others
through classes, and online tutorials,


The art supplies I work with are fine art quality and include: Pan Pastels, Colour pencils (Caran D’Ache Luminence and Pablos, Derwent Lightfast, Faber Castell Polychromos and Derwent Drawing pencils) and pastel pencils, I work on Uart premium sanded paper and Lux Archival. I am a self taught artist with a Diploma of Creative Arts and Health. I also have been lucky enough to attend workshops with the wonderful pastel artists June Wilson and Lyn Diefenbach. I am a current member of the North West Art Circle and the UK Coloured Pencil Society.

Why did I call my business Red Elephant?

Well I wanted to help people create something unforgettable and elephants never forget.
