Introduction: Hi, I'm Ashley! I believe that paint is a conduit for touch in a digital world. As a representational figure painter, I am on a mission to allow others to experience this tangible, sensory experience with their loved ones. With a Master's in Fine Arts, I have both the skills and the empathy to create beautiful one-of-a-kind oil painted portraits that you will cherish forever. I love seeing the joy (and sometimes tears!) on my client's faces when I reveal their finished portraits. Serving a mission greater than myself through painting makes all my hard work in the studio worth it!

Ashley's work is absolutely amazing! You can tell she loves what she does. She was such a pleasure to work with and the mural, a tribute to my late daughter, will bring us joy for years to come.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Small works on wooden panel (fabric encouraged!) start at $900. Small = 8" x 10" or 11" x 14" A 50% deposit is required to get started on your painting, which can be paid using credit or mailed check, after we've determined a vision for the work. I gladly take applepay, cash, paypall, venmo, zelle. I create a rough sketch and work out the best composition for your painting. I send progress photos along the way to ensure you are 100% satisfied! The remaining 50% is required prior to shipping. ​ For locals in Tampa, FL I offer delivery to your home or public place. Mural pricing can range from $15-30 per square foot depending on the complexity of the project. Supplies, scaffolding and travel are not included in this price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    A commissioned portrait is a deeply personal collaboration that begins with a conversation, either by e-mail or phone. Because I believe in the uniqueness and individuality of a single person, one painting focuses on one individual. As a general rule, I don't paint group portraits, but would love to create several mini-paintings that could be hung as a group! I work from reference photos, sometimes a batch of several photos. Not all photos are created equal and I will work with you to determine what photos work best.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts, specializing in figurative/representational drawing and paintings from Florida Southern College and a Master of Fine Arts, which is the highest degree one can earn in the visual arts, from Florida Atlantic University. I am certified to teach K-12 Art in Florida and have been teaching for the past 7 years. I have also studied with esteemed figure and representational painters, Gregory Graham Grant, William Otremsky, and Steven Assael.
