A.L. Ashbaugh

If one were to ask A. L. Ashbaugh to sum up her artistic style in one sentence, she would probably say, "I paint weird stuff." Her inspiration comes from life experience and everything around her: the pretty things, the oddball things, and the downright scary things (though it's nigh-impossible to drag her to a horror movie). Her current interests (and habits) include: photography, exploring abandoned buildings, reading, scuba diving, traveling, sushi (particularly octopus), camping, tapioca pudding, Ashtanga Yoga, cooking, and automotive repair. The artists and authors who inspire her most are: Brom, Richard Kirk, Albrecht Durer, Todd Lockwood, Stephanie Law, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and Sarah Ash.
