Biography

Ashley Cloud was born in Texas in 1987. She discovered her passion for drawing and painting at a young age and became focused on a career as an artist. She went on to study Painting and Printmaking at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and received her BFA in 2011. In the years following, she worked as a data analyst and although art was not the central focus of her life at this time, it was never far from her thoughts.

Precipitated by the birth of her son in 2016, Ashley has returned to painting with a renewed sense of purpose and passion. She is currently embarking on a self-guided Artists Residency in Motherhood to improve her technique and build a new body of work.
