Oh hello!

You made it to my site, the hard part is over! Now let’s cuddle.

But first, introductions. I’m Ashley. I’m  a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, and mixed-media collage artist from  Minneapolis, MN. I offer custom art/design, art direction and creative consultation for all your hopes and dreams.

My happy place (besides Sunday afternoons) is illustration and hand-lettering: custom signage, invitations, web, spot/header/icon, or brand. Check out my 2014 Lettering a Day Project on Tumblr. I fulfill my millennial duties as a blogger (admittedly more of a personal filing system for all things I find interesting) emphasizing interior design, prop-styling, and graphic design.

My collage art is of the quirky, playful, and graphic nature; I’m drawn to playful, light imagery splashed with vintage ephemera.  My focus is on composition, layering pieces with paper, acrylics, and accenting them with hand-stitching and illustration.  Check out my art page for more details and crazy pictures.

When I’m not creating on canvas or screen, I love any good thrift store, antique shop, or garage sale. I’m an avid runner, and I prefer to devour sweet books, movies, or french fries. Check out my design and art and feel free to email me (ashleybarlowart@gmail.com) if you’re interested in working with me. I’d love to hear from you.
