I’m a designer and printmaker from Orlando, FL. I grew up playing soccer and had dreams of playing professionally until tearing my ACL in school. It forced me to take a break from the sport and allowed me to discover my creative side. I found my love for design and art. Since then I’ve worked as an artist and Professor of Art and Design at the University of Central Florida.
Still a huge fan of the sport and the U.S. team, this year I was given the privilege to design the tifo for the 2018 SHEBelieves Cup in Orlando.
(Editor’s Note: Ashley also design a limited edition print honoring 2018 American Outlaws Player of the Year Julie Ertz.)

I also designed this year’s membership shirt. I took some of the most memorable experiences of being an American Outlaw and represented them in the design. It incorporates the scarf, hands, eagle in a shield in the shape of a stadium where we all scream and sing together.
