About Ashley Joon
Using acrylic paint, I create abstract florals with a balance of instinctual movement and subtle observations. Meaning, I dance as I paint using the rhythm of music to guide my brush while pulling imagery from my imagination, photography and live flowers. With my intuitive technique, I paint without inhibitions, allowing myself to move wild and free and letting my paintings develop organically layer after layer. Through this give and take process, an interweaving effect naturally occurs. I strive for my work to carry positive energy that will influence their surroundings. My hope is for the viewer to forget about their troubles and simply immerse themselves in brushstrokes.
About Chelsea Lewinski
Chelsea is a 27-year-old artist born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She started drawing in middle school after taking an art class as an elective. From that moment on she filled up hundreds of sketchbooks. Over the last 2 years, she’s dedicated most of her time to improving her portraits. Her favorite medium is acrylic paint; however, she loves drawing with pencils, sharpies, and most recently her Apple Pencil and iPad Pro. Looking back on the last few years, she’s participated in multiple art shows, chalk festivals, released four different calendars, multiple art collections, and launched her first website. Her inspiration comes from anything and everything, but music is the one thing that remains consistent in her art. When she doesn’t have the words, music has always been there for her. She looks up to artists who are capable of spilling their heart out over a perfect beat. Artists who use their voice to speak about love and war. She feels most inspired and in her element when she has a paintbrush in her hand and the volume is turned all the way up. Her mission in life is to pour her heart out over the perfect canvas to create that same feeling for someone else, and to motivate and inspire someone to do something that they are passionate about, even when the odds are set against them.

About Charley Co.
Bryn Carter founded Charley Co. in an attempt to start doing work that made her soul happy. In designing her business model, the two things that kept presenting themselves were her passion for bringing people together and for helping build communities to support female empowerment. She wanted to build a space where the amazing women of Denver could come to grow alongside one another in both their personal and professional lives. A space where women could naturally embrace the roles of both student and teacher. A work environment where the competition was left at the door and vulnerability could be worn freely.
