Artist Bio

Ashley Thimot is a Canadian artist living in Edmonton, Alberta. Born in Bridgewater, NS, she studied fine arts at Mount Allison University in 2003. After a year of study, she chose an undergraduate degree in design, which she received from NSCAD University in 2007. Upon graduation, Ashley moved across the country to Western Canada, where she worked in the design field until the spring of 2021.

In October 2024, her illustration debut will be marked by her first picture book, “Snow Day”, written by her best friend and published through Nimbus Publishing.
