OUR STORY + ABOUT ASHLEY
The short version of the story is that when I first picked up a paintbrush and put it to wood in 2012, I had no idea what the hell I was doing. Creativity runs through my veins; it has always come very naturally to me. But turning my creativity into a business? I dream big. So, I dove right in because I like biting off more than I can chew.
However, just like much of anything in life - without a plan, dreams tend to crash and burn.
I crashed, I burned.
Fast forward to 2015. Together, my husband and I decided our lives needed a change. He worked countless hours of overtime providing for our family, we had a toddler and a 6 month old by now, and because I'm crazy, I was determined to continue raising them as a SAHM. Queue: survival mode.
Through blood, sweat, and tears, I made a business plan. I am self-taught in terms of painting, so I worked on my skill. I worked on the development of HOJ's specific style + brand. I have researched, experimented with, inquired about and studied my art. Knee deep in paint, sawdust, and coffee, everyday - I'm grateful for God's grace.
Thank you for the encouragement, support, and patience throughout the years, as House of Jason has grown and evolved. I believe that words have the power to impact your heart, your mind, and your life. So, I'm just here to share mine with you.
