Ashton is a force of awesome energy. Her graphic recording is phenomenal and adds a deeper level of understanding to everyone watching the conference talks. Watching her work is spell binding and extremely captivating. Working with Ashton on the MacDevOps:YVR conference is always a beautiful experience. She is a joyful and amazing being and I want to thank her on behalf of our entire team for our success. MDO YVR is all the better for her participation in it. Hire her. You won’t regret it.

I am amazed at Ashton’s ability to illustrate understanding of deep concepts by gathering context from the speaker on the fly. She intently listens and formulates images that resonate with the audience. She truly has a gift, and I’m amazed by her! Her illustrations were the hit of our conference, and the digital images produced from those same paper drawings exceeded my expectations in quality. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I value the incredibly artful and expressive way in which you transformed our thoughts into visions. This is EXACTLY what I was hoping for and it reinforces my belief that ideas captured this way have their own power and energy that continues to resonate long after you have put the pen away.

This past year was our first time using a graphic recorder for some of our educational sessions at our national conference. Ashton provided the creative approach we needed, taking the session content and making it visual and appealing. Our participants were impressed and shared their experience on Twitter with posters she created. Working with Ashton was truly enjoyable and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to work with her again!

By webadmin | August 3, 2020

It’s been an absolute rollercoaster ride pivoting to digital/virtual graphic recording (sketchnote) and graphic facilitate over the last few months. I had a feeling over the last 2 years that eventually I would be asked to draw digitally but I didn’t know that I would be forced into it. Luckily I was practiced up so …
