Ashley Hankins is a fantasy and sci-fi illustrator.
A native of Western New York, she spent several years in Humboldt County, California, where she became enamored with the mountains and mist-shrouded forests, and felt she had truly found someplace magical. Since returning to New York, she has striven to inject her work with that same ethereal feeling she felt in those woods.
She is a primarily digital artist whose work focuses on myth, magic, and the women who inhabit those mystical spaces. Most recently, she has been leaning into her love of vibrant colors and strong, graphic shapes. She is actively pursuing book cover work, in particular looking for venues which will allow her to explore these themes more fully.
She works in oils and graphite for personal projects, and thus occasionally has originals for sale. Notification of originals and limited releases can be found on her social media.
When she is not working on her latest project, she can be found writing, going walking in the community, and drinking excessive amounts of tea.
