Originally from Kansas, Ashley moved to Missouri with her family when she was just 16 years old. She spent most of her childhood and teen years dreaming about being an artist and spent a lot of her time drawing portraits of her favorite celebrities. Eventually she realized that being a portrait artist is unlikely to pay the bills and she took a job at a book store while working towards a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After graduation she stayed at the book store for a little while before taking a job working with a non-profit group whose goal is to bring the arts to underprivileged communities by providing art classes and work shops to children and teens. Today she continues with the non-profit and loves her work.
When not working, Ashley continues to draw, and sells some of her work in her Etsy shop for extra income. She loves hiking and being in nature with Allan and their two dogs named Macaroni and Cheese.
