Ashley Spitsnogle's Art
I am an artist living in Omaha, NE. I graduated from Doane College (now Doane University) in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an Emphasis in Painting and Drawing. The following summer, I traveled to Florence, Italy, where I studied painting and drawing at SACI (Studio Art
Centers International Florence). After returning to the U.S. I illustrated the childrens book,Josh the Baby Otter for the JCMF(Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation). I am their Art Director and have done all of the artwork for them since. The book is in every state and over 8 countries with Rotary International taking it on as a project. More than 300,000 books have been distributed. We recently partnered with Michael Phelps and his foundation.
Ashley works in many different mediums including Charcoal!
More than 300,000 books have been distributed. We recently partnered with Michael Phelps and his foundation. I have painted live at the Cattlemen’s Ball of NE the past two years and will be painting this year in Hebron also. The ‘Black Legacy’ painting I did last year in Princeton was the first cow I had ever painted and it auctioned off for $8,000 and this year’s ‘1947 Omaha Stockyard’ auctioned for $6,500. I’ve been recently painting more Nebraska landscapes and animals.I will be painting live November 3 rd for the Teammates Mentoring Gala at Embassy Suites Conference Center in La Vista, where Peyton Manning is the guest speaker. I prefer oils and charcoal when painting and drawing. I love the way they mix on the canvas and the lights and darks you can get. I often use gesso for texture underneath and use my hands a lot when painting. I’ve also been painting on wine glasses. I then bake them so that people can use them. I sell a lot through my etsy page.
