Ashley was raised in a good family environment, always working with her parents, throughout all the different businesses they have dipped into. In doing such, she was taught that the most important things in life include honesty and fairness, which she carried into operating her own business in graphic design and web design. Not only does she maintain an honest professional relationship with her customers, but she also treats the customers who buy her artwork and commissions with respect and good nature. At the age of nineteen she is currently owner/operator of AES Graphics & Design and spends the rest of her free time helping her six year old brother develop his artistic talent in drawing and photography. Some of his photography is also for sale on this site, along with Ashley's work.

Ashley is most noted for her two minute charcoal portraits which she gives away for free at the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, in return for whatever donation her customers feel comfortable with.

Pensacola Junior College student and teen artist Ashley Spears will grace the pages of the May issue of CosmoGirl magazine.

CosmoGirl, a youthful spin-off of Cosmopolitan magazine, interviewed and photographed the 18-year-old Chumuckla resident last week for an article about teens who are making a difference in their community.
Her mother, Helen Spears, said that editors at CosmoGirl became interested in doing a feature on Ashley after seeing a 2005 News Journal article about her portrait and caricature fundraising work at the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival.
...
Spears collected donations for her pieces during the festival, which went toward art education in Hurricane Katrina-ravaged areas of Mississippi.
Issues of CosmoGirl can be purchased at many area bookstores and businesses.

The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival is a very popular, and still growing, event in the southeast U.S. At the 2002, 2003, and 2005 festivals Ashley Spears was the featured artist in the Children's Area, drawing charcoal portraits for free. When Hurricane Katrina came through in 2005, the people of the Gulf Coast were still being affected by the damage left by Ivan. Ashley and her family were in one of the worst areas of Ivan and felt incredibly sad for the other people who had gone through the same thing, and who had lost more than they had. hen the GGAF came around that year, they had the idea of taking donations to buy art supplies for the Waveland schools. (Waveland, Mississippi was adopted by their hometown of Milton, Florida). The idea was backed readily by the art festival and by the Santa Rosa Art Association, of which Ashley is a member. The SRAA gave her a $100 grant for supplies. Ashley raised quite a bit of money at the three day festival and continued to raise money into 2006. She has now collected well over $1000 and has purchased the requested art supplies and delivered them to Hancock High School in mid-July.
