Lisel Ashlock is a freelance illustrator, working in advertising, packaging, publishing and design. A recent émigré from New YorkCity, Lisel now lives with her husband and son in Petaluma, California. Lisel’s acuity for the natural world and immediately recognizable style make her a sought-after resource.

Her projects range from wine, spirits and artisanal food packaging to editorial for national publications, to illustrations for New York Times best-selling books. “I love problem solving for clients and working within their constraints to create something unforgettable.” Lisel’s eye for botanical beauty is revelatory, offering a gleeful peak into the sacred wild.
