The Artist

story_20211021145218.jpg

 My name is Ashley McKenzie Idol, I graduated with a Bachelor in Studio Art from The University of North Carolina Wilmington. Beginning of my art career I started with the focus on detailed oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings. As I tried to find my personal touch as an artist I came to realize the excitement on working with paint on a larger scale. I temporarily adventured  away from canvas and focused on large murals. The impact that I saw on how a mural can set a tone of the surrounding  space inspired her to set a career as an muralist. I  create my dream through my own small business called, Art Innovation studio. Through my experience I have found the joy of creating custom design that gives a story.

 Being a muralist have set me up to be able to be a full time artist. With that I have been able to go back to my roots in my Original art. On canvas  I finds myself reflecting towards the tipping scale of Beauty (Prime of life) and destruction. I want to share a message through my art and bring more beauty to a world desperately needs more light and reminder of hope. I  hope my art inspires people to follow their own dreams and pursue their passions. I want my art to touch a deep place in people, and bring them into a higher mindset.
