Meet the Artist
Hi, I’m Ashley, the artist behind Wonderline Design. I come from a family of makers, movers, and shakers, and art has always been part of my life. The foundation for Wonderline Design began years ago, long before I knew that I would one day start a stationery business. Back then, I simply enjoyed making hand-drawn cards for loved ones and the opportunity cards gave to say the things that should never be left unsaid.
Armed with a communications degree, art and business minors, and intentions to do good in the world, I spent the next 15 years in communications and government relations for homecare organizations that helped seniors and people with disabilities have access to medical equipment to maintain their independence at home. Passionately invested in my “day job”, drawing in the evenings was a great way to recharge and connect with others near and far.
As the interest in my designs expanded beyond friends and family, I realized that it was providing another avenue for spreading light and positivity to the world. Simple gestures. Kind words. Little ways that enable one to be Present in the lives of others, meeting them where they are, as they are.
The concept for Wonderline Design came into focus, and in 2017, I launched it from my home in Portland, Oregon. My hope with Wonderline is that these colorful, organic, and whimsical designs inspire a sense of wonder while brightening your corner of the world.
