Ashley discovered her passion for art in middle school and continued to develop her talents throughout high school and college. She attended Louisiana Tech University, where she majored in Studio Art and completed a graduate degree in Art Education. After teaching high school art in Caddo Parish for four years, she decided to dedicate her career to being a professional artist. Ashley sees the creative process as parallel to the human spirit; just as every person has a story, so does each artistic endeavor. She encourages viewers to experience each piece by interpreting its meaning in an individualized way, creating their own unique narrative.  Shown here is a collage highlighting a few of her paintings.
