about ashlyn hopkins


Ever since I was little, I have always loved drawing, painting, and working with my hands. I rarely feel more "myself" than when I'm making art.. A few years ago, I came across the artist Andrea Cáceres and took her class on how to draw pets, which helped me finally nail down how to draw animal faces (something I'd always struggled with).


About a month later, my sister asked if I knew how to draw dogs,  as her friend's dog had passed and she wanted to give her a gift. Later, after hearing of her friend's strong reaction to the drawing, I felt in my soul that this was something I was meant to do.

In my spare time, I love to snuggle with my husband, my dog Timber and cat Taika while reading, watching Hallmark rom-coms, or sprucing up my island on Animal Crossing.

I always love finding new ways to release creative energy and will be bringing new items of art to my website soon!

Thanks for checking out my website! Be sure to drop me a note at hello@popofhoppy.com - I'd love to meet you!
