Ashley grew up in a very artistic family. Watching her mother do her make up at her vanity, her stepfather with his miniatures, her aunt’s meeting together to do crafts and her grandma teaching her how to sew and create patterns.
In grade school she started taking sewing and art classes. She would later attend college for costume/fashion design. To supplement her education, Ashley worked on various plays doing props and costumes, which eventually led to her starting her own business. In 2010 she started Gore & Glitter doing tailoring, custom garments, and makeup.
Ashley graduated Fall 2016 with a certificate in costume, fashion design, pattern making, industrial sewing and dressmaking. In 2017 she attended M.U.D, Makeup Designory in Burbank; completing the Master Makeup Program where she learned beauty/special effects makeup and hair styling.
After Ashley finished school she lived in Austin Texas for 2 years. She made the move back to California to be close to family. Then decided to continue her education, she is currently working on getting her BA in Costume Design and becoming an Esthetician.
Ashley is now a published and certified traveling makeup/hair artist who is also skilled in costume/fashion design. Based out of Texas and California, she offers services for makeup, hair, tailoring, costume design and soon to come facials, other skin treatments, wax and eyelashes.
