About Ashley

Born and raised in rural southern Illinois, I have loved the visual arts since I was very young. I studied architecture in college and discovered that I was far more drawn to the graphic presentation of the structure rather than the technical side of architecture. This led me to pursue the graphic arts upon graduation. I worked for several years in marketing and graphic design, and it wasn't until 2014 that I decided to teach myself watercolor painting. I fell in love immediately and have put my heart and soul into building a business around my passion for design and watercolor art.

Founded in 2016, Ashley Bunten Art + Design is a design studio and online shop where I create custom invitations and cards, art prints, stationery, and original watercolors. In addition to these products, I also work with couples to create one-of-a-kind wedding invitation suites. 

Thank you for stopping by and allowing me to share my artwork with you. Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more.
