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 hand held digital pen, producing art that resembles a lino cut 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.
