Ashton was passionate about both art and photography.
She was a talented artist and dreamed of owning her own gallery. Ashton wanted to live in Paris, and through the generosity of hundreds of people, she was able to visit Paris with her family in December of 2009. Ashton took art classes in high school and was a art major at UNC- Chapel Hill.
All of the works on this site- incuding the background- are Ashton's creations.
