21. Fashion enthusiast. Caffeine addict.
Inhabiting the unseen crevices of the East Coast.
Crossbreed business witch running with coffee and camera in hand.
Artist. Photographer. Model. Blogger.
But these labels don't really make the person.
A disaster of many passions and dreams.
A black adorning wanderer searching for daily creative stimulation.
Student. Workaholic. Designer.
Everything. Anything. Limitless.
But really, who the hell am I?
I'm Ashley J and I'm a full time Graphic Design student:) I am basically living in a computer lab and I'm in a civil union with the Adobe Suite. It's a beautiful little relationship.
When I'm not in school, I do...well...everything else.
I am a freelance fashion photographer / editorial photographer. I loathe the average outfit shoot stereotype that's become the norm for fashion bloggers...so I make my own rules.
I model in most of the photos you see, of course...but my goal in life is to eventually be behind the camera 100%. I want to flood the world with visions of haute couture beauty:)
I am a traditional artist/ designer too:)
I do everything from acrylic paintings to illustration to custom footwear and accessories...just to name a few..
I also design for a clothing company Jeffie.com ...which means I get to put all of my bad ass graphic designs skills to use and create original art for the sickest clothing you've ever seen.
I run an online freelance design business Artofashley.com . I take on independent business clients who are in need of logos, brand identities, website help, and overall design execution.
And in 2012, I created and established my own online global fashion and art magazine, which was a way to utilize all of the skills I have and create something tangible and visually new and beautiful. ( CXIII Magazine)
I guess you could say...I'm more than a blogger. I'm more than a bunch of pictures. I don't want to be famous, or the best dressed, or any of that.
I just want to inspire and change the world with any creative medium I can :)
I'm a girl decked out in black on a mission.
I'm the chick behind the blog, the chick hanging out til midnight in a computer lab. the chick posing in wigs and the chick too determined to ever take a day off.
This is the blog where all of these facets of my world collide.
This is the diary, the process, and the journey, of a chick on a mission.
