Creatively Nomadic
Ashley Wilder (b. 1989) in Baltimore, Maryland; is an independent self-taught multidisciplinary contemporary artist. Her style is modern with a nod to history and post-impressionism. Since 2013, she continues to deliberately include her church upbringing and study of history into her artwork. For instance, her work in the Tignon series featured women adorned with head-wraps in the style of enslaved and creole women worn in Antebellum Louisiana.

In a climate where history is consistently under constant threat of erasure, she continues to bring history old and new into her work. Ashley has featured her artwork on Led Baltimore and premiered Noir Découvert, a solo exhibition at the Eubie Blake Center in February of 2018. She has two upcoming series featuring children and historical representation to be debuted in 2020.
