About Me
My name is Ashley Lucas {also known by my business name - Lady Lucas} and I'm an illustrator, holiday craft designer and arts instructor specializing in adorable characters that enchant. I've pretty much always been this way, even as a small girl growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Holidays, animals and anything cute are all constant sources of inspiration for my illustration and fine art pieces. A graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, I lived in the New York area for over a decade working within a number of industries including production, marketing and arts education. I'm currently traveling the world, bringing my cute characters to as many people {big and small} as possible. Visit me online at http://www.ladylucas.com or on social media @LadyLucasArt ;)
