MEET THE ARTIST

Owner / Artist, Ashley Cunningham has been an artist all her life.

Her passion began as soon as she could hold a crayon.
When she was just 7 years old, Ashley won her first drawing contest for the newly opening Pixar film "A Bug's Life" back in 1998. From there, she continued to win small contests and enter her drawings / photography into 4-H events and local contests.

Ashley took any and all art classes in and outside of school (repeating a few classes in high school based on her small town options), before being accepted into the American Academy of Art in Chicago in 2009.

Graduating early with her BFA in Graphic Design, Ashley went on to pursue a few different jobs to keep her skill set well rounded including running a vinyl graphics shop where she solely designed and printed large scale graphics for custom vehicles and boat wraps to becoming the Paint Nite Franchisee of Northwest Indiana.

When the pandemic of 2020 hit, Ashley's graphics job at a printing company went remote which gave her another opportunity to pick up painting again after having left Paint Nite for some time. The focus being- Pet Portraits!

Working directly from your photograph, Ashley can create a beautiful, realistic painting of your best friend. She also continues to utilize her photoshop skills by starting the company NWI Photo Restoration.

Now Ashley fills her days with Face Painting / Henna Festivals & Events, teaching Henna Classes, creating & selling DIY Kits, painting Dog Portraits, editing photos, and anything else that sparks her creativity!
