Nature Reenvisioned

Nature is beautiful.

In a society full of technology and fast paced mentalities though, we do not stop to fully enjoy and appreciate the beauty out there. I started this project as a way to explore and study the beautiful shapes and forms of nature. Sure a leaf is a leaf, but have you ever stopped to realize how many different shapes and sizes leaves come in? A lot! And they are beautiful! 

Getting to travel and see new sites has definitely brought this more to my attention. I lived in Ohio for over 13 years and never really stopped to smell the roses you could say. Now that I am in California, a gorgeous state, I am putting in that extra effort to enjoy the beauty of nature. Coming to California, I have been introduced to so many new plants and flowers I had never seen before.  re

I hope you enjoy these beautiful shapes.....

I am Ashly. I recently moved from Ohio to Northern California with my husband Kevin. I graduated from The Ohio State University in December of 2013 with my B.A. in Arts. I am a photographer and involve myself in various crafts. A certain level of madness sets in if I do not have a project in the works or ideas in mind. I love walking into craft or home improvement stores and getting inspired with all the possibilities. My passion of photography started in high school when I took a film class. I enjoyed the class but never considered photography could be any more than a hobby. I quickly realized how that was not true. My husband (then boyfriend) started getting into Photography which lead to a degree and career. I was often his model in his photography classes and quickly realized how intriguing this art was. I took photography classes during the course of getting my art degree and fell in love again.
