Ashley’s yearning to put images on paper blossomed at an early age. When she was just a toddler, a few crayons could keep her satisfied for hours. Later, her professional career in painting began at the early age of 17 with the sale of her very first painting.
Ashley had her first gallery show at Azo Gallery in Covina at the age of 19 (which still shows her work today) and has been selling paintings consistently since that time. Her work consists of acrylics, oils, mixed media, color pencil, charcoal, and pastels. Most of her work is available as originals, prints, and/or giclees.
Ashley believes that her artistic creations stem from her deep feelings at any given time. Emotions form the basis and backgrounds of her pictures with the color schemes representing her moods.
Her art can also reflect inner turmoil. “When I start drawing in black and white, my family and friends normally know something’s wrong,” she says. Ashley completed her AP art portfolio at Claremont High School and is now working full-time on a college degree in graphic design at the LA Campus of FIDM.
