A self-taught, born and bred Canberran artist, Mick Ashley’s work is described as quirky, vibrant and unique. Mick’s subject matter is broad, however, he is particularly well known for his ability to showcase both the well known and everyday Canberra.

Mick Ashley’s own unique style of art called ‘Digital Lino’ mixes old with new. Mick applies a lithographic approach using a handheld digital pen, producing art that resembles a linocut print. This is the most unique medium among his other disciplines including watercolours, gouache, pen, pencil and acrylic paints.

Most works are provided as limited reproduction prints. In addition, his artwork features on a number of products, including books, t-towels, calendars, tote bags, cards and fridge magnets. Commissions are also available.

Mick continues to develop his style which is widely celebrated in the Canberra region, interstate and internationally.

I purchased as Xmas gift for husband. He loved it! Mick (teacher) was very encouraging. Hubby is colour blind and doesn’t do much in the way of creative art. He found it relaxing and lots of fun, using the paints and his hands as the tools. Highly recommend

The class was a lot of fun. The venue, teacher and materials provided were all excellent. Looking forward to doing another of Mick's workshops in the future.

Lee Nelson  •  Jan 2021


A fun and interactive learning experience, and I even managed to produce art in the process.

Mary-Lou Roden  •  Dec 2020


I had a great time, used both sides of my brain and both hands, Mick was a great teacher and I was very happy with my final canvas painting.

It was a super fun night! Mick ran the workshop in a way that was somehow both relaxed and structured. The food and wine were great too.

Jessamy Sams  •  Oct 2020


Excellent venue, expert teaching, A+ snacks. Well structured and well paced little lessons made it easy to follow, but there was still plenty of room for creativity!

Had such a fun time and Mick had a great approach to helping us not take ourselves too seriously. Mused much on the colour purple

Fran 'Sofrank'  •  Oct 2020


Finger painting with Mick Ashley was a lot of fun - Mick challenged us to play with colour (or lack of), use both sides of our brain and taught techniques to improve our finished pieces.

Leave your painting inhibitions at the door; Mick will encourage you to create.
