Ashley Mary Art Studio Tour

By Francoisetmoi

Earlier this year when I was so pregnant I was literally about to pop, I had the pleasure of photographing painter, illustrator & prop stylist extraordinaire Ashley Mary, of Ashley Mary Art, in her Northeast Minneapolis studio for my friend, Claire Staszak's Women Who Make column, a fantastic feature celebrating women doing cool things in their creative field. Ashley was kind enough to show us around her bright and colorful studio and share insights into her design process, works in progress, and new mediums she's currently exploring. After a few hours of demos, chats, and photos, I left full of inspiration and delight. What a morning! Head over to Claire's site, Centered By Design for Ashley's full interview and more looks inside her studio! And while you're already here, check out a few quick captures from the visit...

I love Ashley's bold use of color, pattern play and femininity that's celebrated with each piece.

As we were leaving for the day, Ashley sent Claire and me each off with a hand-painted postcard of our choice. I chose a blush, gold & black beauty and have it up in my office next to a few of my own DIY's. Make sure to hop over to to see (and/or purchase!) Ashley's beautiful work!
