My name is Ashley DeVrieze and I'm an artist and new mom living in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm grew up in Illinois and spent several years in Wisconsin before landing here, so I'm definitely a Midwestern heart.
When not painting, I'm hanging out with my husband, little Mister Ren, and our pets - our pup, Ripley, and Lucy-cat. I love hiking, discovering new music, and wandering through thrift stores and artsy shops. You might have noticed that I have a deep love for the outdoors - particularly places with lots of water, lush green, and pine trees. Any chance to head into the wild with family is a good one.
I use a mix of mediums, but mostly watercolor, ink, and acrylic paints. I like to render anything - illustrations of our pets and other characters, botanical and nature studies, or abstract explorations of shape and color. I like to paint on different surfaces and explore new projects to stay excited about my work.
Most of what you'll find here are original pieces inspired by the outdoors. Creating fulfills me and allows me capture the feelings I have about different places and objects. I love that I can share those same feelings of happiness or serenity with others.
