Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams. ~Ashley Smith
I grew up in a small town, went to college in the big city, and now I live in Monroe. Monroe is located about halfway between the city and the country. I think of it as the perfect metaphor for my personality and style.
I love the city life but I want the country home. I want to knit sweaters by the fire with yarn I’ve spun from my alpaca, and then go see a play at the 5th Ave theatre. The same sort of dichotomy seems to apply to my opinions on art as well. I love clean and modern design but I am so drawn into old vintage photographs. I want my work to have a current and present feel with more than a subtle hint of nostalgia.
