Born and raised in the windy city of Chicago, Ashley Fessenden has loved drawing as long as she could remember. The passion started from seeing her mother and uncle draw when she was young. Though their art drive has passed, art has become a big part of Ashley’s life. It wasn’t until attending Columbia College Chicago that she realized her desire to do art for children’s books. Though her usual art style borders on the cute and creepy, she loved the opportunity this book has given her to enhance her abilities. There’s no telling what the future holds for this growing artist, but if she can be part of something that brings joy to a child the future looks bright.
