Ashley Barnes' Profile
I spent much of my life growing up in Naples, FL where I have memories of taking art classes at an early age and walking around downtown art festivals on weekends. The colors that surrounded me while living in south Florida have created a strong inspiration in much of my work. With houses painted in pastel tropical colors as well as bright pinks of the hibiscus flowers, my world was a palette of jeweled tones.
After departing from Naples, I received my Associates degree in Studio Arts from Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, FL in 2009. In 2010 I was an Intern at John Tilton Porcelain in Alachua, FL. I then received my BFA in ceramics from the University of Florida in 2011. From 2011 to 2013 I lived in Asheville, NC as a Resident Artist at the Odyssey Center for the Ceramic Arts. I now work full time as a studio potter in Atlanta, GA.
