Hello! I'm Ashley and I am the voice & vision behind winterthirteen.

I am 26 years old. I teach art part-time at a junior high and I spend the rest of my working life between artist, retail sales associate, & coach! I love what I do and I wouldn't have it any other way.

On June 11, 2011, I married my best friend, Nicholas. He & I met while in college at Kent State University. He was studying Architecture and I was studying Art Education, Fine Arts and Art History. He works for a local architecture & engineering firm. We live in a cozy bungalow in North Canton, Ohio with our rescue, Noelle.

I am passionate about art, travel, writing, film, food and music. This blog is a place where I can share these interests & my art with you.

Please take a moment to introduce yourself. Comment, e-mail, message, or tweet! I love hearing from you!

Find Me Elsewhere
You can also find me on Twitter and on Facebook.

I have an unhealthy obsession with Pinterest and I occasionally post photos on Flickr.

I also blog for a local online news source, North Canton Patch. And, I have an art education blog where I post lessons, photos, and information from the classroom.

Stand For Something
Here are a few of the local non-profits that I applaud & support:
Friends of the Pound

The Arc of Stark County
Wiles Wellness Foundation
