Ashley Doucette, MFA
Any day I spend creating something, is a day spent well.  
I was born in Canada in 1987, the granddaughter of a prodigious crafter, with an inborn love of making art and making a mess. From the moment I could hold a crayon, I was drawing. I kept drawing. Then I started painting. Then designing. I haven't stopped.

I studied art at York University, then moved overseas to complete my Master's degree at the Frank Mohr Institute in Groningen, the Netherlands. I fell in love with the country and eventually moved to Rotterdam where I work as an artist, an illustrator, and a Lead Product Designer at Mendix. 

There are many themes that come back in my work. Myth, story, psychology, magic, people, the strange juxtapositions of life... and some comic relief. Sometimes cats. I can lose myself in painting a still life of a cactus or a little shelter I found on a hike. I love to explore techniques and push myself in new directions, so you'll find a lot to look at in my little studio.
