Welcome to my website. My name is Ashley Bell and I am a professional artist based in North Carolina. I specialize in highly detailed, original portraits in graphite and watercolor landscapes. I am currently accepting portrait commissions locally and through this site.


Growing up I always enjoyed drawing and painting and marveled at an artist’s ability to realistically recreate a landscape or still life with just pencil and paper or paint and brush. It is in this realistic style that I enjoy working. The creative challenge of achieving a balance of light and shadow while working through complex compositions and details is very fulfilling.


I hope you will enjoy a visit to my Portraits gallery where you can view samples of my work. If you like what you see, commissioning a portrait is easy - for more detail visit the Commissions page.


You also have the opportunity to visit my Paintings gallery to view watercolor landscapes I have painted over the years. I have several limited edition prints and giclées available for purchase which will be on the site soon.

Please enjoy your visit to my website and don't hesitate to contact me should you wish to discuss a commission or have any questions I can help you with.
