guestpost// survive creative rejection

Hi! My name is Ashlie Blake and I am a mixed media artist living in upstate NY. I find inspiration from family, garden, and woodland creatures from the area I live. Working out of my home studio I have the balance of being creative and also raising my children. Art is my life, I wouldn't know what to do without these two hands creating and painting and in my spare time crocheting. My work can be seen in the international art magazine Somerset Studio on the Expression pages of issues Jan/Feb, March/April, and July/August. You can find me and my artwork at my blog Paintingbliss, twitter, facebook, Instagram. Feel free to visit my store and make a piece of my art your very own!

Ashlie has been kind enough to offer up this beautiful mixed media art as a prize to one of you lucky readers!! Enter below :)
