Ashley Ronning is an illustrator based in Brunswick, Melbourne. Her creative endeavours began when she was four, and cut her own hair to complete a picture of a pony. After studying graphic design, Ashley found her way into freelance design, set dressing and prop making, and now spends her time in her sunny studio illustrating and risograph printing. 

Ashley also runs a risograph publishing project called Helio Press. When her pen and ink cartridges are down, she's playing pinball, going to gigs, or having a tinnie in the sun. 

If you would like to speak to her about a project, email her at hello@ashleyronning.com
She's also on instagram and twitter
