I like to call myself an artist. Someone who appreciates and understands "the arts".
I first began my artistic journey at a very young age. Always impressing my elders either with my musicianship or creativity. First with piano, then moving to a trombone, and then mastering the sax. I was very musically inclined as a young person and even traveled to perform when requested. In high school, I competed often and later experienced the excitement of university scholarship contentments. I indubitably took the closest scholarship to home. I studied music performance at Colorado State University of Pueblo and triple majored in music performance, early childhood psychology and exercise science. Throughout my life
I modeled, competed in pageantry and in college I won a contest for Miss Malibu, a “Blondies” calendar girl…Miss July. One of my bigger more momentous superficial achievements. I was so intrigued with my model photographer, Jerry Martin that I dove into the other side of the scene with his help and belief in me. After working in front of the camera, lights and crew I had a huge desire to understand more. I enrolled in photography at University and interned with Jerry Martin Studios. This is where I then opened as Ashley Tyler Studios, an entity of JMS and The Vault Studios in Colorado Springs. After a trip to Europe with model Jesse Kru, I threw my musical papers high in the air, left university 1 year shy of graduation, and moved to Denver and interned with celebrity photographer and music producer, Noe Deleon of Axiom. This time in my life was a momentous advancement in my photography and graphic design. I moved around southern Colorado building my little business into a thriving career with international travel and clientele.
I currently reside in Fort Myers, Florida with my amazing and handsome husband and fur children, Turkey & Charlie. I enjoy traveling, adventure, fine foods and wines, animals, betterment and kind people. I feel like my skill set and intellectual cravings are met best when I quench my need for enlightenment of any sorts. I'm in love with art. To create- is the fulfillment I need for happiness and peace. It’s where I belong.
