"Ashly Lovett prepared illustrations of six varied characters for the cover of my book of short stories. Her drawings were in each instance perfectly reflective of the individual nature of the character based on the text and discussions between us. In addition, each drawing was simultaneously realistic and elegant, which is a distinctive aspect of her work, and the colored drawing of the central character beautifully rendered in chalk pastel. She is highly professional and responsive and I give her and her work the highest recommendation."
