Art Information

About the Artist

Ashley Dietrich holds BFAs in Art History and Studio Art, a minor in Philosophy, and did graduate studies in Biocultural Anthropology and Archaeology.  She began painting professionally as a muralist, then focused on smaller scale pieces.  Her artwork is not available in galleries, rather shared directly with the public.  After 10 years of working as an artist, Ashley dedicated her work to funding Olive's Place Dove & Pigeon Sanctuary Inc, a nonprofit she founded to provide long-term care for disabled and domestic birds.  

Ashley’s work features avian subjects, inspired and informed by her years as a wildlife rehabilitator.  She depicts birds naturalistically, yet renders them in an illustrative and symbolic manner – creating an otherworldly environment with gold leafing, embellishments, and ornate backgrounds.  Current projects explore anthropomorphism through stylized portraits, which investigate the concept of veneration and encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.

Packaging/shipping cost is estimated by weight in your cart, and is accurate for a single piece, but may overestimate for multiple pieces combined. If you want to order several artworks shipped together, please contact me with your postal code and desired pieces, and I will double-check an accurate cost.  If you go ahead and purchase and there is a significant overage (over $10), I will refund it.  I do not send packages to 3rd party shipping services.
