Ep.20: Don’t think about other artists as competition with Ashleigh Izienicki (missupacey)

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Oct 02, 2017 •  Interviews

Ashleigh Izienicki is a 23-year-old freelance illustrator who just recently finished Laguna College of Art and Design and already have her own business. She was born in a small mountain town in Colorado where she grew up raising chickens and riding horses.

She moved to Arizona during high school and then traveled all the way to California for College. Ashleigh currently lives in Laguna Beach, California with her bunny Buffy.

My current dream is to be able to make money doing something I love, creating art! She is about to finish her second coloring book which I can’t wait to see!
