I like to call myself an artist. Someone who appreciates and understands "the arts". I love design, coffee, writing, travel, art & music. I love expanding my awareness and reading. I immensely respect life and all the creatures of the earth. You'll usually see me smiling.
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 saxophone. 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 my hometown. 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 loved taking photos. In college I won a contest for Miss Malibu, a “Blondies” calendar girl. One of my bigger more significant superficial achievements. I was so intrigued with my photographer, that with his help, I dove into the other side of the scene. It began with an internship with the famous Jerry Martin Studios. After working in front of the camera, lights, and crew I had a huge desire to understand more. I then additionally enrolled in photography at University and officially 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 skillset and intellectual cravings are met best when I quench my need for enlightenment of any sort. I'm in love with art. To create- is the fulfillment I need for happiness and peace. It’s where I belong.
