Hi there! I'm Aisling, but you can call me Ashe.
I'm an artist in Fairbanks, Alaska, and recently left my day job to pursue my passion full-time.
I'm a Lord Of The Rings fanatic, collector of natural curiosities (ever seen a cabinet of wonder? My living room looks like a museum, and I love it!) and I adore my poodle pups who keep me company while I paint.
Curiosity has always driven my work, and I use painting as a way to celebrate wonder, magic, and sometimes the strange. I'm a firm believer in the idea that art should make people think about and question what they see as "normal".
Besides, who doesn't love dead mosquitoes? And bats are just cool.
I hope that by sharing my work, the people around me are inspired to pick up a paintbrush, marker, crayons, and create. Art has been one of the most powerful forces in my life; a constant through good times and bad, and a grounding activity that helps me work through complicated moments.
Let's keep in touch!
