Ashley studied at Western Washington University in both the Fine Art and Design Departments. While there she obtained her BFA with a focus in Mixed Media and a concentration in Printmaking. She has worked professionally as a fine artist and art educator since 2011. Her artwork has found homes both across the world and locally.
