My work spans photography, digital media, storytelling, painting, teaching, public art and community art-making. What fuels me is putting the tools of art-making and media in people’s own hands, enabling them to explore aspects of themselves, their families, their communities, and the world around them through photography, art-making and digital storytelling.

As an artist in the schools, I’ve worked with students to interview and make portraits of climate activists and local farmers; map and photograph historic homes in their communities and match them with old photographs and names on gravestones; create a 10 foot-wide cyanotype collage that explores who each student is individually and collectively; investigate the school forest through on-site photography and writing; and make short videos of community members with compelling stories to share about life as an immigrant to Vermont, making art, food, sustainability, and growing up in a small rural community. 

I work with two inspiring collaborators on public art and placemaking/placekeeping projects. In 2016, we created From the River, To the River, a creative place-making public art project of five interrelated art installations for the town of Brattleboro, funded by a National Endowment for the Arts Our Town grant.  A 2019 commission for the ECHO Leahy Center in Burlington imagined “Energy Commons”, in the form of a 20’ x 35’ kinetic sculpture of steel, mirrored disks and LED lights which communicate current wind speed. We are currently collaborating on Ask the River, an interdisciplinary movement and visual art collaboration that intertwines people and place through reflecting and deepening our relationships with our watersheds. 

On my own, I find joy in encaustic painting, embedding photographic imagery in its many layers.

    Ashley is one of the five phenomenal women collaborators in the movement and visual arts collaboration Ask the River. Our project received a NEFA New Work New England 2021 grant

    Intertwining people and place, Ask the River is a movement and visual art collaboration building, reflecting and deepening our relationship with water. Three choreographers and two visual artists engage with communities throughout Vermont to create cyanotype postcards and 25’ long silk cyanotype banners. They choreograph the banner unfurling into two performances in Fall 2021 inspired by the stories and movement of water and its interconnectedness with our environmental, racial, social and spatial justice. Ask the River is guided by the Abenaki understanding that people and place are one.
