I first saw Ashley Mae’s artwork at Tom & Lucy’s Art Shoppe during our SassyScoops girls’ night out. I loved the abstract look and feel of her watercolor LDS temple renditions, not to mention the poetic name of her business, Birds of Ashmae. (Kind of rolls of the tongue, doesn’t it?) My favorite is of course the Salt Lake temple, due to getting married there 15 years ago this June.
But I must say, her Timpanogos temple watercolor is gorgeous as well.
I visited Birds of Ashmae on Etsy and found Ashley Mae’s other beautiful watercolors, from animals to flowers and even portraits. I love her Peony and Old fashioned bride paintings! Of course, George would love the Dinosaur with Friend watercolor (pictured below).
Right now Ashley Mae’s Etsy shop offers six different temples: Salt Lake, Provo, Timpanogos, Mesa, Boise and Manti. Plus, 10% of all temple sales go to the LDS Temple Fund. Super cool! And like a mentioned before, she also does custom watercolor portraits. (For examples, visit her Etsy shop.)
If you want to know when Birds of Ashmae has a new temple in its collection, follow @birdsofashmae on Twitter.
Ashley Mae graduated from BYU with a BFA in painting and an MFA in poetry. She grew up in Provo, Utah and is currently married with a two-month-old little boy named Remy. You can catch some of her beautiful poetry on her blog, birds of ashmae.
Ashley Mae is giving away one of her gorgeous 8×10 LDS temple watercolors, winner’s choice!
