Hi I'm Laura (Ashley Live Art) and I'm a live event painter from Asheboro, NC. I bring the art process to life for audiences. I have a unique, bright & wild style and I'm excited to share that with you.
I began my art career when I was around six years old by painting people at the ocean for a $2 bill Later, I attended UNCW and graduated with a degree in Studio Art. During college, I worked part-time at a paint and sip studio. After graduating from UNCW, I purchased my own paint and sip studio in Southern Pines NC. While operating the studio, I also took a full time job as a high school art teacher in Asheboro, NC.
After five years of teaching and running a studio full time, I decided to leave high school teaching and pursue my newly discovered passion of live art painting. I’ve spent the past three years painting wedding ceremonies, graduation ceremonies, baby showers- almost every type of celebration known. I have truly fallen in love with charity live paintings. It has been such a blessing to be able to do what I love and at the same time contribute financially to the many charity organizations that I have become involved with.
"Laura Ashley is the perfect addition to any wedding, vow renewal, birthday milestone or retirement party, charity event or business milestone! She is truly amazing and paints from the heart- she always manages to capture the raw beauty"
"This young lady did a great job for us that our grand opening party at Adventure Distilling company in Cosby Tennessee"
