Well to keep it simple, I’m releasing Overtone images over on my Instagram page. I feel like the waiting has been waited… Here’s to this chapter and to the journey that has yet to be told.
A few amazing art updates!!!
If you didn’t know, I’ve been recording and sharing me painting , the healing properties of color and my own personal journey on YouTube. I created a channel..catchy name “Artist Ashli”. I also give away a “Color Study” each week on InstaGram of the color I’m working on (8inch round water color on paper that looks amazing in a floating frame/yes I need to update the shop with more). All you have to do to enter for free art is… comment on any of my IG stories. Yes, yes you can enter each week for a different color. So, if you haven’t already, please follow, subscribe and show some love to me over there on those outlets.
I just completed the color Black. This piece will be featured in my up coming series Overtone – Shattering Silence. 11 down 6 more to go! ( I wrote about this series in my March 4, 2019 post below. please, check it out). This series started off slow to me. I had such a huge learning curve when it came to recording, editing, producing, and so many etc’s. Nothing I have ever done before. Now, it seems to be flying by on so many levels, yet so many pieces of the puzzle to still put in place.
Whats left to this series run down:
I’m working with Regal Plastic(High performance plastic company) for my frames. The design team Jake and Dave are more then amazing. The costumer services and meeting my visual expectation has been phenomenal. I will be meeting with them this coming week to check out a couple prototypes. To say the least , I am very excited and can not wait to see them floating on a gallery wall.
I’m also, working with Sarah Corbett Photography. If anyone knows her work she has the most magical way of capturing exactly what your eyes/heart sees for you to relay-“the feeling” to the viewer in 2D portfolio.
With that, this will be the first series made into a book. I made a small prototype of a book which lead Sarah on seeing my vision and sent over a few prototypes that matched my vision. Again, to say the least, I can not wait and looking forward to moving forward with this.
As well as, I want this series to go to a few galleries before hanging in their forever homes. I want the owner to be able to purchase but to know they still travel with me until the tour is done. Working on how this contract will look as the Overtone tour outline comes together.
With that in mind.. One the most important step is how to store/ship them as far as packaging/wrapping/driving/shipping them safely goes. I have a few thoughts but haven’t gotten to the physical prototypes just yet, gotta get through framing first…
I was invited by the lead designer Alice Mac at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital last winter to design 3 murals for their patient rooms. They are “i spy” inspired and the team picked the themes; Beach , Jungle and Saint Louis. I put a Missouri twist on the Saint Louis one, since kiddos visit from all over and their location isn’t technically Saint Louis City. They loved it and by the end of this summer I should be starting my first room.
I have few other plans/invitations up the sleeve and already looking forward to my next series of work. Yes , yes I already have three+ series out there in my head. I look forward to sharing all updates in my upcoming post.
As you could imagine, I’m feeling good and in the extra feels of all the love, light and happiness. Self motivations/talks include: my dream board to stay focus when distractions try to rise – and telling myself to grind out until my lights out.
My , my , it’s been a while since I have shared an update. I feel like I’ve hit the ground running since I’ve been home from Malibu.
Quick run down… I have been practicing Color and Sound Healing above FLOATSTL Mid-Town. I see clients on Monday’s and have really enjoyed the opportunity to hold space with so many incredible people. If interested in an appointment please contact me.
Just incase you were wonder… I still have time to paint some wonderful pieces of art. Some would call their passion second nature …However, I can never not see colors and artwork in my head so I’ll call mine first 😉 Especially after my schooling amazing next level vortexes Tama Do taught me and how much more I see color and inspired to guide with my gift of synesthesia.
With that , I do currently have work featured at Randall Gallery 13th North St. Saint Louis
I also, started doing a little live recording on Facebook. Really have enjoyed the feed back and it’s a neat way for me to get out of my box while staying in 😉 as well as working on Twitch(for artist) account which is another live stream social media app. I’m most proud of staying current on Instagram that took me a while but I think I’ve created a flow that works well for me and possibly easier for people to see me as an artist. It’s always a growing process.
As of now… I am on the grind grind grind grind. My second level of schooling for color and sound healing is in Switzerland 🇨🇭 (Brennan’s and Sir’s level 1 intensive) and we are working ever so hard to get there. Leaving everything to life’s plan and the rainbows and fairies;) while still working hard to catch up on daily bills blah. They say if you can see it , you can be it ; so here’s to the big dreams for our future 🙌🏽. June 11th will hopefully be the fly out date.. I’ll do my best to keep you posted here however if you click the follow button on my Instagram or Facebook you might find some quicker action.
Thank you for being here on this journey with me. I’m ever so looking forward to many more stories to share with you. Until next time…

So much to be thankful for and carrying gratitude on my sleeve for the FLOAT STL staff. Thrilled to announce!! I’ve been working on new pieces art with a deep focuse in colour therapy over these last several months. In this time I had been invited & accepted to display them at FLOAT STL new location in Maryland Heights.
~ I currently have four on display. The art above is one featured that you can view & purchase starting November 9th 2016. I’ve continue to lean to the title Emerge. As in “I’m here to see my freedoms of life and how my relationships grow. An energy that transpires through my paints & brushes as one would journal a love letter home; It’s where my energies are allowed a natural – intuitive space for my rawest self reflections of communications to emerge.
