Hi guys! Are you ready for the latest installment of photos to paintings? This one is special because I got the privilege of capturing a super talented local photographer’s fur babies.Read More
Holy Cow! What a crazy year 2018 was!
I painted over 130 paintings this year, most of which were private commissions (Thank you so very much for your support) and 30-40 were new pieces for shows. I knew I had been busy this year, but when I finally stopped to count it all up I was blown away. Almost everything I painted this year is included in the above image. There are a few that I missed somehow when I made this.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for your support. I am so truly humbled and grateful. I couldn’t do this without you guys!
Look out 2019!
Welcome to my second installment of photos to paintings! This time featuring a commission I recently finished of these two beautiful shelties.Read More

Maybe you’ve been thinking of getting a portrait of your pet painted, or having one done for a friend, but you just aren’t sure that it will look like your pet. You’re thinking, “Sure, Ashley, your paintings look great online, but how will I know it will look like my pet?”.
Introducing a new mini series I’m going to try to keep up on my blog: Photos to Paintings!Read More
Hi Guys - It has been a crazy few months for me. Thanks to you all I've had a steady stream of commissions this winter, which I am SO grateful for because this spring has has not been kind financially. Those expensive, adult things that break (like cars and computers) have all decided to break...at the same time.Read More
It's a month after Christmas so I feel like I'm finally safe to share the paintings I completed for you all this year.Read More
This summer was a whirlwind blur of art fairs, commissions and new paintings. After visiting Omaha, the next stop on the Ashley tour was Aspen, CO then Westport, MO, Carmel, IN and Lee's Summit, MO. I feel fortunate to have met all of you in these areas and I'm looking forward to working with you commemorating your pets.Read More
Hi guys - Sorry, it's been a while. I've been super busy, which is a good thing for me but bad for my blog. :)
In June I participated in two back to back art fairs, Art in the Park in Columbia, MO and the Omaha Summer Arts Festival in Omaha, NE. Both were good shows and ironically I met a bunch of people from Kansas City in Omaha. Go figure!Read More
The day finally came. Months of preparation and excitement all led up to....one cold, rainy day. I was so excited when I got the acceptance letter - Marion is one of the notoriously hard to get in shows for an artist. Plus it's an all originals show, and since I was juried in on only pets I had a lot of work to do to get ready. I was down to a measly 3 original paintings of animals.Read More
The details of my summer art fair schedule are starting to shake out, here is what I know so far. I'll update this post as I learn which fall shows I get accepted into. Hope to see you there!Read More
I've decided to dip my toe back into the art fair biz after a brief hiatus in 2016. As such, I'm excited to announce that I've been accepted into the Marion Arts Festival! This festival is ranked in the top 25 fairs in the country and I've been applying for years and finally got accepted! Dog paintings for the win!Read More
Hi Guys - It's been a bit longer than I anticipated since my last post, but I still want to share some of the commissions I finished this year for Christmas.Read More
It's almost Christmas you guys! I just wanted to drop a quick note here to all of my fans and followers letting you know that your support is much appreciated! I know it's been a bit of radio silence from me for a while, but I promise it was for a good reason!Read More
Hey Guys, the past month has been a crazy whirlwind of happenings. After Art Westport I traveled to the St. James Court Art show in Louisville, KY and met lots of great folks. And since then I've been busy with opportunities that have come my way largely because of folks I've met at Art Westport. One of said opportunities is gallery representation here in town at the Phoenix Gallery!Read More
I'm excited to share with you my new series of dog paintings! I'm calling these my "Conversations" Series. The idea spawned first from conversations I have with my own pup. Yes, we talk. When you spend hours alone in a studio with only your tiny adorable Chi mix puppy sometimes you bounce ideas off each other.Read More
Let me just start out by saying WOW, it's been a little over a week since Art Westport and I'm still processing everything that happened. Westport is definitely a show like none other. At least not any that I have participated in.Read More
Hey Guys! I know it's been a while....a long while. It turns out last year's show season took a bigger toll on me emotionally than I expected and I took a hiatus from painting for several months after I finished up my Christmas commissions.Read More
A few new paintings to share with you.Read More
Five art fairs in five weeks…it seemed like a good idea months ago when I started accepting the invitations, but it turned out to be much rougher than I expected.Read More
