ASHLEY NORA ART
A Creative Mind For Our Times
Ashley fell in love with drawing when she was just six years old and at nine, created her first portrait with color pencils. Through adolescence, Ashley used art as a way to escape, “Art was how I would run away from home, without ever leaving.” She continued focusing on drawing throughout high school. It was not until college that Ashley painted her first real painting!
In 2012, Ashley graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Anderson University and started her career as a Chemist. Although in a great career, Ashley realized she still loved art, so she decided to paint periodically. In 2017, she commissioned her first painting. Then commissioned art part-time to fuel her passion. In 2019 she made the bold decision to leave her career in science to pursue art full-time!
Ashley captures real moments of human interaction through portraiture using multiple mediums to express different ideas. Many ask Ashley what her “art style or medium” is. Ashley does not have a specific style or medium that she would prefer to categorize her work; she prefers to not be placed in a box!
Ashley is experienced in acrylics, mixed media, sculpture, and oils and hopes to continue perfecting additional techniques.
