Paige Ozma Ashmore ~ Illustrator
Paige Ozma Ashmore was born in the United States but spent her formative years living in Germany. She credits living near forests and castles as her main inspiration for her art. Steeped in fairy tales and older stories, she learned of bears that could talk, sleeping princesses in old castles and how the woods could hold deep mysteries inside of themselves. She was further inspired by her exposure to Russian lacquer painting and classic fairy-tale illustrations. She has taken classes with Ka Graves, Leonie Horwitz, Lisa Albinger and Flora Bowley. She works mainly in acyrlic paints and soft pastel.
“I believe that art sings the secret music of the soul. I paint images that awaken the old stories hidden in our bones.” – Paige Ozma Ashmore
