Ashlee Kothenbeutel's Graphic Design & Studio Artwork portfolio
I've always loved making art as a sort of cathartic practice ever since I was little. I am an artist who focuses on emotional expression through colors, brushstrokes and dynamic portrayal of movement, as well as metaphors. Shadows in general are of interest to me; I especially enjoy their complexity, irregularity, and ghostly appearance. Shadows create another level of intrigue to the art piece and can make a stationary object more captivating.
I enjoy the challenge of creating and discovering unique ways to display
While I am more well versed in illustrations by hand, I am learning to create illustrations using programs like Adobe Illustrator. Through this, I am honing my artistic skills and can make a wide variety of products, including logos, signs, booklets, and a few personal pieces. Graphic Design has also influenced my paintings and hand-illustrated drawings compositionally.
It has taught me the value of breaking
down ideas in order to get to the core.
