Ashleigh Bowman was born and raised in Indiana, PA. She earned her BFA at Edinboro University, studying Studio Arts with a dual concentration in Illustration and Printmaking, and a minor in Sculpture. Inspiration for her artwork comes from her fascination and appreciation for nature, as well as enlightening viewers on various environmental issues. She illustrates this information through drawings, paintings, or screen prints. Her artwork contributes to her aspirations of being a full-time illustrator and urge to make a positive impact on the environment. If she is not working on her art, she is either gardening, crocheting, watering her houseplants, listening to music, or playing her guitar, piano, or ukulele!
