At the invitation of EPA scientist, coastal ecologist and keynote speaker Autumn Oczkowski, Ashley created this illustration for CERF 2017, the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation conference, which took place in Providence, Rhode Island.
CERF is a scientific program, convening 1,500 scientists, managers and professionals, who present information on estuarine and coastal subjects.
Ashley enjoyed working with Autumn and several scientists, researching an environment she knows well. She lives on the Narrow River, a tidal inlet, and was inspired by atlantic silversides, eel grass, rockweed, and diatoms.

A sweet little serigraph to hang in a coastal cottage. This is a two color print, hand screen printed on Arches 88, mould-made paper. This is a limited edition of 18 and each print is signed and numbered.
The image area is 8 1/2" x 11 1/4" and the paper size is 11 1/2" x 14".
The Ocean Set is a collection of 5 prints taken from my textile designs. Sand Dollar, Seaweed, Skate Eggs, Rockweed, and Jellyfish, printed in ocean hues of blues and greens.
Printed on heavy, recycled matte card stock, 4 5/8" x 7 1/8". Set of 5 cards, one of each design, with envelopes.
Seaweed No.3 is hand printed on natural, peached cotton drill, which has an ultra-soft, brushed finish. Print is on front only. The design was created from a piece of seaweed that I found on Narragansett beach and I use a technique of splattering different colors of ink on the screen. Pulling the print creates infinite blends of colors and no two come out exactly the same. This one is aqua, with blues and greens.
Pillow measures 18x18 inches and has an invisible zipper and high quality, synthetic down insert. Please choose with or without insert.
