Ashley Young-Duquette, Lake Stevens, WA Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement I appreciate you taking the time to view my work and I hope that you find something here that will make you smile and want to share my work with others. I first started taking pictures when I was in college. In high school and even previously before when I was little, drawing was my passion and my talent. Love of art and artistic talent runs in my family. Needless to say I knew one day I would bring my artistic eye out soon too. My photography is inspired by Florabella Textures, Sylvia Cook photography, Beth Armsheimer, Rebecca Lily, Oeil, Nadia Stalgic, Leigh Taylor, and Nichole Van. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I normally will contact you back within an hours time.
Also for those who may wonder what J.A.C.E stands for in my copyrighting; it means J-for my daughter Jaylee, A-for me Ashley, C-for my husband Corey, and E-for my son Ethan. My children are my best models and my muse, my husband is my main support and biggest fan. Without my family I know I wouldn't have the strength I do today. They are my life.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”~Aaron Siskind
