Ashley is also a vibrant artist. She would describe her work as a meditation with paint or pen; offerings of Love. While dancing, sitting on the studio floor, painting with her hands and sometimes closing her eyes her art brings to life the vibration she wants to offer the world. Her creative process she'd describe as pure joy, Each of her pieces are typically created in one session, using her own techniques of either splattering, circling or writing the word LOVE again and again.
Being human, digesting, approaching, and responding to the wonder of life is a common thread that is woven into her teaching and art. She calls this philosophy, the importance of "White Space" and roots it in the art and practice of self care.
Smile, breathe and go slowly. Where there is more space, there is more sparkle.
You are in good hands with joyful soul.
