Artist Spotlight: Savannah Ashley

It's October and we're thrilled to announce our latest MADE Spotlight Artist - Savannah Ashley! Stop by the store all month long to check out her amAZing mixed media sculptures and whimsical dreamcatchers! Take a look at our Q&A with Savannah to get to know the artist better:

Q: What is the story behind your brand and products? 

I have always been an artist but a year ago was encouraged to start pursuing this passion. My products have transformed and grown into more of a clear identity, but I am always thinking of new ideas to push myself to grow as an artist. 

Q: What is your favorite item you have made so far?

I love designing the steer skulls - each one is unique, and with each one I make, I have a vision for it. It is really hard to just choose one item. I don't think I have one specific favorite. One day Ill make a favorite one & keep it for myself!

Q: What makes your pieces extra special and unique? 

My pieces have a unique spin by taking ordinary items and making them extraordinary. I love finding a rusty beat up globe, painting it, and adding my own creativity to it to give it a makeover. 

Q: What inspires you?

My artistic style is bohemian-desert inspired which feeds into our Phoenix culture. I like giving these items a modern flare and a sense of uniqueness that cannot be duplicated.   

Q: What is your favorite part about Phoenix? 

I am an Arizona native & absolutely love living in Phoenix. My favorite part about Phoenix is the creative community that has been growing and coming together to support each other and encourage other locals to support one another and shop local. I love all the community events that Phoenix has to offer.

Q: What’s your favorite Phoenix local hot spot? 

I love coffee, so I have so many favorite coffee shops for all different reasons. I cant just pick one because I like to go to certain ones depending on my mood and what kind of atmosphere I am looking for. Im actually a barista for my day job at Dutch Bros, so I would have to say I love that spot the most, making peoples coffee and starting their mornings off with a smile!
