Background

Ashley Mary is an abstract painter who creates lively, energetic works in her studio in Northeast Minneapolis, Minnesota. For the last 9 years, Ashley's work has focused around celebrating color and shape compositions. Ashley’s tools are broad. Her paintings are in heavy acrylics creating thick textures. Her collages made in paper, gouache, pastels, and markers explore the interplay between mediums. As a freelance designer, Ashley’s studio work tends to have a graphic nature in its bold shapes and moments of pattern while remaining organic in its execution. It’s playful, colorful, and has a touch of whimsy.

Outside of her studio practice, Ashley freelances as an illustrator, surface designer, and prop stylist, working with a wide range of clients to help bring fresh life to their environments and brands. Her most recent product launch is iphone cases sold at Targets nationwide since 2016.
