Fragile girls in ink

Ashley Goldberg's characters seem very fragile, looking for true friendship and protection. She draws shy little girls, with plush bears in their arms, hiding in trees and in most cases being accompanied by cute kittens or elves.

Working especially with ink, this American artist believes great emotions can be captured in a simple gesture or mimic. Her illustrations tend to be simple, focusing on characters and using color contrasts, digitally added. Nowadays, she lives and works with her partner, Drew Bell, in Portland OR, enjoying a beautiful artistic life next to Isadora, their inspiring cat.
