Half Way There…

AAAaahhaaahhhhh hah ahh ahh ha ha hahha ah!! Really 😉

My new paint pants…

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…

Further News…

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.

Back to the ahahhahhahaaa aaahhaha a’s feeling good and in the extra feels of all the love, light and happiness I’ve been putting into myself. Self motivations/talk include my dream board helps to stay focus when distractions try to rise – and telling myself to grind out until my lights out.



Overtone – “Shattering Silence”

YELLOW: 3 of 17

As you may of already read ; I’m recording me painting as I dive deeper into color therapy, color mixing, sound therapy and more on my YouTube Channel .You can join me and learn more about colors , sound and my artistic life in general. Ask questions. Post comments. I’m here! You also can follow me on Instagram through my artist journey as I share live streams, day to day pictures and give away a color studies.

The series I’m working on currently is 17 Works of Art on Round Glass.

Titled as above: Overtone – “Shattering Silence”

I believe silence can change any course with a complex compromise between subconscious and consciousness. With this belief, silence creates perception and how we physically interact.
Silence that is never heard like an overtone without the laughter, movement, fear and anything between like harmonics. The paintings I created are my reflection of this belief. The colors are silence that will be carried by perception from the subconscious and consciousness creating harmonics in any course that they be placed.

Oh! Did I mention…

Happy New Year! I’ve been holding on to this one. Can you believe I have more to say after that last post. (giggles to self)

After much consideration and awesome feed back from my first recordings. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be hosting  live recordings on Twitch and up loading videos to YouTube 9pm of me painting, color therapy, color mixing, sound therapy and more bi-weekly.

E3 x 3 x 3

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…

Where Im at – Where I’m heading

As you may of known Ive been studying/practicing Colour Therapy. After several years of reading blogs , forms, websites and attending meditations and workshops. “June 14th , 2014 I begun pursuing my practice as a Colour Therapist.

My first task was to in my journey… to Connect to Spirit in Nature – “Divine Intelligence that will allow me to connect and awaken my vitality, aliveness and divinity.”

(I have some notes here that I’ve started writing out of my note books during my my process. I will continue to update edit (grammar / selling) until one day the notes become part of the website/ blog page itself…)

I after applying to TAMA DO, I have received the opportunity to start schooling to become a practitioner this Fall. I will be studying Sound, Color, Movement( Qi Gong) and Aromatherapy.  

Im extremely thankful and certainly have been more in dream state (more then usual;) which actually has made me feel more grounded. I begin my travels this October. Part of the schooling is in a Sound Garden in Malibu, California and the other is in the Mountains in Switzerland. Im looking forward to my journey ahead but more importantly  the opportunity of sharing this experience of Colour Therapy with you. Below Ive listed some general info on what Color therapy and Tama Do are. I also provide some links if you wanted to explore more information. If you have any other questions or just want to share some stories with me please send me an email , etc. and Ill be happy to reply/listen.

What Color Therapy / Chromotherapy is? Color Therapy provides colours to the electromagnetic body or the aura (energy field) around the body, which in turn transfers energy to the physical body. This makes chromotherapy the most effective among various therapies. In other words Chromotherapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colours) of electromagnetic to cure nondegenerate diseases. It is a centuries-old concept used successfully over the years to cure various diseases. Each of the spectrum colours is simply light of varying wavelengths, thus each colour has its own particular energy.  The energy relating to each of these spectrum colours resonates with the energy of each of the seven main “chakras of the body”.    If you can imagine the chakras/energy centres as a set of cogs/wheels, they are rather like the workings of a clock or an engine; each cog /wheel needs to move smoothly and at a similar speed for the clock/engine to work properly. Thus good health and well being is achieved by a balance of all these energies (or the smooth running of the cogs/wheels). Colour therapy can help to re-balance these ‘wheels’ by applying the appropriate colour to the body and therefore re-balance our chakras.

Research behind Tama Do

Tama-Do Academy was founded in 1988 by French musician, composer, acupuncturist, researcher and bio-energetician, Fabien Maman, whose revolutionary biology experiments in the early ’80s showing the impacts of acoustic sound on human cells, created the field of vibrational sound therapy, as we know it today. (His studies started with Albert Einstein’s Relativity Theory.) For nearly 30 years, Fabien Maman has created research and practical applications using Sound, Color and Movement® to balance the body, mind and spirit through the subtle energy fields (aura). He has created serval techniques through the Academy and is in the process of developing several more. For more information please visit their website here.

Thank you for your time.
