The Artisan Oyster

Ashley is the best! Her dimples are amazing, her art is incredible & she loves the bubbly as much as me. I did a shoot for her for her website revamp and this was our second shoot together. She loaded up 50 pieces of her art, brushes and an easel into her small car and trucked it over to my studio. We popped the bubbly (yes, at 10:30 a.m) and laughed, talked shop and shot her art. 

YOU all need to check out her personal art (first up here) and her paint and sip classes. I included some of the ones I dream to paint one of these days. When I shot her website photos I shot a class and let me tell you- she is an AMAZING instructor! I don't know about you, but I'm SO intimidated by painting. Of any kind. But after seeing her awesome choices of paintings and watching her walk her students through the process, I'm so excited to try this. She really is a gem, a talented, beautiful gem.

Check out her site and her upcoming summer classes. She even holds private parties. Let's get our creative juices flowing and paint!!! (also, she's offering FREE classes to kiddos this summer. Check out her website for details! Rj, E & I will be there!)
