Ashley Maidon was born and raised in North Carolina to the sound of Duke basketball, NASCAR and “hold my beer.”  After graduating high school, she found herself directionless, moving around and taking general education courses.  In community college she met two very awesome art instructors and from then on she knew a creative major was where she belonged.  After getting accepted to the one and only university she applied to and meeting more amazing instructors and new friends, found that printmaking was cool but photography is way better!

I'm interested in how creativity, artistry, and technology fill the mold of innovation.  As a still photographer, I realize the need in me to expand my story telling through different mediums within photography/film as well has other investigations in sculpture and printmaking.  Sometimes I just want to learn as much as possible and then set a route to explore new concepts in my art making.  I am currently living in the great state of North Carolina.  Please feel free to contact me; I am open to collaborations, assignments or projects.  If you want to learn then there is nothing holding you back.

Favorite Artists:  Jonathan Meese, Lori Nix and Martin Parr
