Mick Ashley


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.

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.
