Canyon Springs is Ashley’s second collection for Cotton+Steel and takes her exploration of untamed nature in a stunning new direction. Canyon Springs blends organic forms and florals with geometric motifs and mandalas in natural tones of blue, green, red with pops of orange, sage, and mustard. Create perfectly balanced quilts that evoke the serenity and effortless harmony of nature, or beautifully rugged bags, clothes, or home accessories in three colors of our cotton-linen canvas.
Ashley currently resides in beautiful Bend, Oregon. Her artistic style stems from her graphic design background but blossomed into the lovely world of surface pattern design. Her designs begin with a pen or brush in hand, and she completes them by digitally adding finishing touches. Spending time with family and exploring the rugged terrain or camping near the Alpine lakes is a constant inspiration source. However, Ashley was most influenced by her precious grandmother Joan. Ashley has been blessed to have her grandmother’s brilliant creativity permeate through her and to have fond memories spark daily doses of inspiration.
