Ashley Longshore











We are honored to feature the one and only Ashley Longshore! We are obsessed with her bold use of color, lifelike portraits, and embellishment which she uses to create these fresh takes on pop art, feminism, and believing in yourself. We can almost guarantee you will be inspired by her infectious positivity. Keep reading to learn more about the woman Danielle Krysa referred to as a "creative tornado."

The New York Times hails: Ashley Longshore is Fashion’s latest art darling. Her glittery, bawdy feminist work makes noise and her business model disrupts the art world. Ms. Longshore’s sparkly rings and Christian Louboutin shoes add some “lady” to her look, a brash hybrid of hip hop star and high gypsy priestess.  Linda Fargo says, “I think what's so appealing about Ashley's voice and imagery is that it's outspoken, humorous and glamorous all at the same time. Her palette is loaded with paint, makeup, glitter, body politics and witticisms you wish you had thought of!" Ashley professes on the regular: “I’m brave enough to be who I am in a society where there’s a lot of pressure to be perfect. I can only be me and I encourage YOU to be YOU.”
