Ashley is an Industrial Artist/Designer, living and working in Providence, RI. Originally from NY State-Ashley grew up outside of Poughkeepsie, NY but found herself in Buffalo, NY for a number of years, enrolled at SUNY Buffalo's School of Architecture, studying and being taken by the city, its history and architecture. But after experiencing 50 straight days of snow, Ashley said goodbye to Buffalo and transferred to RISD, where she received her BFA in Industrial Design in 2010. In both her art and design work, she works in a number of medias, exploring industrial processes, materials, and design elements. She is greatly influenced by the urban environment in which she creates, and her approach is informed by a desire to find unique character in a progressively mass-produced and post-industrial world. Her favorite color is fluorescent green and she drinks an absurd amount of coffee.
