Ashlee Comerford [ashleecomerford]
What do you do? How do you define yourself as an artist?
My name is Ashlee Comerford and I am an oil painter from Colorado. Oil painting is only one form of expression for me. I've considered myself an artist since I was about 4 years old and on the ice figure skating. It is a way of expression for me. I intend my art to create a feeling for my viewers.
What is your message?
My message is always changing with every painting but the theme stays the same ( to tell you a story and make you feel something). I also hope that when you see a painting up on your wall that I have created you want to be in that moment and celebrate that moment as if you were the figure in the painting.

How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
It depends really. It simply comes to me. It is one moment in time that I just need to remember. So..I put it on canvas and soon as possible.
What role does technology play in your creative process?
I use my camera for photo reference and thats it.
What is art?
Art is for everyone. My definiton is simply; An emotional statement put on canvas, paper, or in the form of a sculpture. To be remembered and cherished.
When do you get your best ideas?
Anytime and any place.
How do you evaluate whether an idea is good or not?
I do a preliminary sketch to see if it will hold up as a good painting.
