Brianna Ashe is an artist living in Amagansett. Her work plays with color, text and shape. When we are not in quarantine, Brianna assists other artists in their studios.
“During quarantine I have been completely immersed in my own work for the first time in a long time. I have been spending equally as much time cooking and gardening. When quarantine began I started building my website, which is something I have actively avoided for the last ten years. I have always envisioned my work on other things, like mugs, bags, shirts and hats, but have never had enough time or money to invest in bulk orders of merchandise. With a push from a friend who teaches marketing, I dove in to creating and organizing my website and it was much less painful than I had expected. This has allowed me to share my work with people who like functional things, rather than a piece of art that is an original and maybe too expensive.
With my website up, and staying active on Instagram, I have had a number of new opportunities fall in my lap. Graphic design, selling work to people other than my friends, and being asked to participate in shows when all of this cools off.”
