Ashley Nielsen at Ox-Bow

This summer, I was given the privilege to attend Ox-Bow school of art for a week of class. The course I took was The Portrait as a starting point, which covered material I already knew, as well as expanded my knowledge on portraiture, color, light, as well as expanding my knowledge on what a portrait can be. To put it simply, Ox-Bow is a magical place, one where artists are nurtured and encouraged to explore their artistic passions, all while in an incredible location that feels like a refuge from the world around us.
