ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: GRAPHIC TREASURESSeptember 21, 2020
Last month we were delighted to welcome Ashleigh Sadlier from Graphic Treasures to the Framer Artist Program. Ashleigh is a very talent artist who creates beautiful, bespoke artworks to order. With each and every one of her illustrations being hand drawn with love and perfect personalisation, her artworks make for the perfect keepsake or sentimental gift.
We recently caught up with Ashleigh to learn more about her company, Graphic Treasures.
How long have you been an artist?:
I’ve been creating illustrations for about 18 months but have been selling them through my business since March, right before COVID hit.
Tell us a little about your work and its style:
I create custom illustrations by using a reference picture of your choice. I draw each illustration by hand in 4 different styles - faceless, detailed, colour block or B&W.
What is your favourite type of print to do for people?
My favourite at the moment is the ‘faceless’ style!
How long does it take to complete each custom print?
That totally depends on which style/how many people etc. Some take me 1 hour, others have taken me 5 hours.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love being able to merge two images together for people who have lost loved ones. It allows me to create an image they otherwise wouldn’t have had.
Your best tip for someone starting their own business?
Go for it! If it’s something you’re truly passionate about then don’t let anything get in your way.
What do you do in your spare time (if you have spare time)?
Spare time doesn’t exist for me. I’m a stay at home mum of a 2yo & 8month old. I run this business in any spare time I get!
A quote that you live by:
I don’t really have a quote as such but ‘never say never’ has always resonated with me.
What’s your favourite 90s jam?
How can people place an order?
One of the best parts of our business is working with local artists and photographers to print and frame their artworks. If you are an artist, illustrator, designer or photographer and would like to learn more about our artist program, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
