This studio is committed to sculpting personalized interior spaces that create a magical experience for commercial and residential environments.

Ashley Morgan is a sculptor, painter, spatial designer, and university educator. She positions her interiors work between fine art and design to create a delightful, personal approach to each individual project. Her studio is ran on the belief that the built environment is one of the most interesting aspects of being human. We have the ability to shape our surroundings which effects how we feel and function within our world. The objects and spaces she creates are inspired by a connection to awe, joy, and the magic found in everyday life.

Every space has a story to tell, and Ashley works collaboratively with every client to tell that unique narrative.

Ashley studied sculpture and spatial design at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (MFA 2010) and sculpture and painting at Arkansas State University (BFA 2006).  Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including public art projects in Florence, Italy and Seoul, Korea.  Through her research, Ashley has also been selected as a fellow for the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary Nohl Fellowship and awarded a Sonnabend Fellowship for the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles.  

She lives and works in Pittsburgh, PA with a team of builders and thinkers to realize every bespoke project.  Ashley also teaches Art History and Studio Art and Design courses to build the next generation of thoughtful creators. Please reach out if you're interested in working together to bring a little magic to your space.
