Hi! I'm Ashley Prejoles, a full-time painter and instructor. My art is about a making tangible connection with the planet and each other: to feel the magic of the things and places around us, bringing wonder, calm or thrill to our spirits.

Nothing brings me more joy than sharing my art and techniques with other people! Watercolor has wiggled its way into my heart as my favorite medium because of it's fuzzy, splashy effects and I am thrilled to share with you what I've learned along...
