“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.”
– Georgia O’Keeffe
Hello! I'm Ashlyn. I'm a photographer and artist based in the Memphis, Tennessee area.
I began my photography journey early in my life. As an artistic, observant, and very introverted little girl, I often found myself watching the people and the world around me - taking in all of life's little details. I wanted to capture these moments and exhibit the way I viewed them to others. Through consistent learning, troubling failures, and joyous successes, I was able to turn my passion into something that I could share with clients and hopefully bring new views into their world.
My love for photography ultimately led me to realize my desire to create. By joining my high school's yearbook staff, I discovered another part of myself that was intrigued by graphic design. I decided to attend Southeast Missouri State University and pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a specialization in graphic design.
I now work with photography, graphic design, and sculptural elements - and sometimes all three at once. I strive to be in the mindset of a student in and out of the classroom, continuously challenging myself to be open minded, in a state of wonder, and curious about the world.
Outside of creating, I enjoy hitting the town and viewing art with my friends, spending time with my furbaby Rhen, and playing video games.
I hope you'll join me on this journey that is life.
