Ash Denscombe : Illustrator / Fine Arts

I’m a Brighton-based illustrator and fine artist, working mostly in traditional-media drawings. I like simplicity and elegance, doing as much as possible with the simplest tools.

I started learning to draw when mental health issues kept me housebound for a long time – I’d always wanted to be able to draw, so why not take the opportunity? 15 years later, I’m still in love with it, and the positive effect art has had on my life is incredible.

At the moment, I’m focused on texture, I really enjoy the challenge of translating a nice grungey 3D surface onto a 2D page.
