BiographyAshley is an exceptionally well rounded artist from the US. Her ultimate goal as an artist is to make a living doing what she loves -- art! She is specifically interested illustration. Ashely, currently age 20 says, "I have my Mother to thank for always encouraging me to be creative and choosing and alternative education for me. However it is my Father I thank for my love of Graphic novels." She is self-motivated and is always looking for ways to better herself intellectually and creatively. Drawing everyday is a must whether it be for personal enjoyment or commission work.
InterestsAshley works part time at a local gym teaching preschool gymnastics classes. The rest of her time is devoted solely to her creative endeavors. Her most recent projects include: illustrating children's books, painting Native American murals, interior design assistant and several small commissions. She has working on concept art, character designs and story boards for several children's books. Once a week she travels to her mothers and assist in design work by performing painting techniques, and sewing custom draperies to restore a local hotel. When she feels the need to "take a load off" She works on her personal artwork. Her favorite renditions are psychedelic drawings, original characters or trying out new mediums.
MusicOver the years Ashley has taken classes and workshops from artist like: Baker, Parsons, Spitler, and Jones. From 2003 to 2004 she apprenticed with pottery and textile artist Jones. In June 2005, Ashley began studying Media arts and Animation at the Art Institute. Some of her classes included: Color Theory, Character Design, Sculpting for Animation and three-separate Life Drawing classes. She earned fifty-eight credits in a little over a year and made the dean's list two of the quarters. Since then she has been showing her work at such venues as the local First Fridays and more recently the Winterfest. Ashley also has volunteered her talents locally with the Council on the Arts since 1998 and more recently with the Local Mural Project.
FilmsAs much as she loves what she is doing now, Ashley would love to have a chance to work on some comic books and graphic novels. She hopes to continue attending local events and to set up at some larger events and conventions. She is planning to continue her education in the illustration field. With her love of art driving her forward, she is optimistic about every new commission and future project.
