Born and raised in rural southern Illinois, I have loved the visual arts since I was very young. I studied architecture in college and I worked for several years in marketing and graphic design after graduation.
In 2014, I found myself as a stay at home mom in a highrise apartment in Asia (my military service member hubby’s job took us overseas). I desperately needed a creative outlet and decided to give watercolor art a try. I am completely self-taught, which meant months of trial and error. I soon fell in love with the process and have put my heart and soul into building a business around my passion for design and watercolor art.
In 2016, I officially launched Ashley Bunten Design, a design studio where I create one-of-a-kind wedding invitation suites. Let’s see what we can create together to set your wedding paper apart from all the rest! I look foward to an opportunity to work with you!
