At the invitation of EPA scientist, coastal ecologist and keynote speaker Autumn Oczkowski, Ashley created this illustration for CERF 2017, the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation conference, which took place in Providence, Rhode Island.
CERF is a scientific program, convening 1,500 scientists, managers and professionals, who present information on estuarine and coastal subjects.
Ashley enjoyed working with Autumn and several scientists, researching an environment she knows well. She lives on the Narrow River, a tidal inlet, and was inspired by atlantic silversides, eel grass, rockweed, and diatoms.
