- Hailey McGinty | Owner and Partner - H&G Designs

Wendy Jacob | Freelance Columnist - Toronto Star

Ainsley isn’t just a versatile artist able to work in a variety of media and styles, she’s thoroughly professional and technically proficient. She’s upbeat, resourceful and forthright, but always takes direction well. Ainsley has the ability to turn projects around very quickly, and she is diligent and detailed in her execution so the results are successful and satisfying."

Joshua Miller | Project Manager and Luxury Branding - Swimsuits Direct

"Ainsley was not only great at following specifications exactly but equally as great to come up with ideas and suggestions on her own which we loved. Would 100% contact her again when we are looking to do future projects."

- Kira Leskew | Owner - The Eagle Institute

"I had a very unusual project: to visually illustrate the core values of my business in a painting that would be used on our YouTube set. Some of them were very difficult to come up with conceptually. Ainsley had fantastic ideas, and more importantly, she gracefully steered me away from ideas that had the potential to be confusing. She was very professional in all of her communications, and delivered exactly when she promised. I am absolutely delighted with the end results, and I have had a lot of positive feedback from the new addition to my set. I would highly recommend Ainsley for any corporate-related illustration."

- Tyler Lyall | Owner - Black Sheep's Trucking

"Ainsley understood exactly the kind of tongue-in-cheek approach we were going for and made the ideas come together. A pleasure to work with, she has an ability to tease out your design goals when even you can't figure them out. I will continue to work with Ainsley for all of our design and illustration needs. I would recommend her to everyone I know, very impressed with everything we have received from her!"
