I am so excited to start up our artist spotlights and giveaways!! Check back every Wednesday!
Kicking things off is Ashley Mae Hoiland of Provo, UT and her shop Birds of Ashmae.
I have seen Ashley's work come up on a few other blogs and I am in LOVE with her style!
What is your favorite thing in your shop? I think the thing I love most in my shop is the little painting of the old fashioned bride. I don't know why, i just love it. Right after I painted it, I spilled an entire cup of water on it, and everything bled. I was sad for a little bit and then realized that I liked it even more because of the spill. ( i love this one too!)
What are your other hobbies? I love to play soccer, write, ride my bicycle and cook with vegetables.
What do you listen to while creating? I love listening to music while I paint. I listen to a lot of bjork, sigur ros, and lately laura veirs.
Because I am a food lover....what is your favorite thing to eat? My favorite thing to eat are tomato sandwich's with bread from the provo bakery and orange rosemary jam from annemade jams. I eat them everyday.
I also loooooove her personalized portraits! I will have one of these someday! Send in your photo and she will paint a custom portrait just for you!
