"Clearly, [Ashley Adams] has a keen eye for notable patterns and shades of color among natural landscapes."
“Ashley possesses a truly distinctive talent and a completely unique vision. She sees things in nature that others would simply pass by without noticing – it’s a capacity I have never really seen before. Not only is Ashley an accomplished and gifted photographer, but she handles the business and transactional side flawlessly, which I’ve found is a rare attribute. Working with Ashley was a pleasure because she listens to her clients, appreciates their needs, and takes the time to gather the necessary information to understand a collector’s psyche. Knowing what I was looking for, she came to my home with a selection of pieces to see what would work in my space. We went on to assemble a dramatic triptych of pieces that I love and feel has transformed my home. I hope to be lucky enough to add to my collection over time.”
