I know it seems absurd to mention the C-word (Christmas) and consequently the H-word (Holidays) but I'm going in! Start thinking about putting requests in now if you'd like a beautiful, personalized, painting to give as a gift to someone you love or to yourself. The process takes 6-8 weeks so carve out YOUR spot by sending me a message today. I already have two spots that are taken and I can only fit in a few more!
Proof positive that a painting from Home Goods never elicited this kind of reaction. Last year a client commissioned me to create a painting for her boyfriend. She shared this video with me as my painting was unveiled. Guys, can I be frank? I well up every. single. time. I watch it. Several years ago, he lost his mother to cancer and this painting commemorates a special visit he had with her in Paris. Paint is a tangible way to bridge the distance between absence. I'm proof of this! When I lived apart from my husband for three years, paint was a conduit to touch him when he was physically out of reach. That's what this body of work was all about. That's my mission as an artist.
"We are so happy with our beautiful paintings of our girls! Ashley kept us up to date on the progress of our pieces and hand delivered them herself. She included a personal note specific to each piece. They are such a treasure for us and Ashley was a joy to work with!"

If you know someone that would love to give a deeply personal gift - please feel free to share my info below. As always, you can also check out the FAQ's page that answers all of your burning questions like "How long will this take" and "Can you keep this a secret and not post this on Instagram" (It's hard but I do!)
Please take care of yourselves this month! The world can be an indifferent place. Get outside, talk to a friend, pet a dog, buy a ridiculous Halloween costume, whatever it is that keeps you solid.
