Ashley L. Schick makes works on paper and artists’ books. The daughter of a biology teacher and an electrical engineer, her work mixes the biological and the industrial. She completed her undergraduate degree in Visual Arts, minoring in Packaging Science, at the University of Florida. While pursuing her MFA in Printmaking from SCAD-Atlanta, she worked as the lead printer and constructor for Kiki Smith’s artist book Color Noise. After graduating, she co-founded Straw Hat Press, a fine art printshop.

 

Ms. Schick is a Visual Arts faculty member at the Lovett School, currently teaching in the Upper School. She has also taught many art workshops for students of all ages from children to adults, most recently in collaboration with the High Museum of Art, Georgia Tech, SCAD, and as the Studio Program Director for the non-profit One Love Generation (2013-2015). In 2014, she was selected to be a part of the Georgia Center for Nonprofit’s High Potential Diverse Leaders program. Ms. Schick was also an artist’s assistant to sculptor Brian Dettmer and a resident in the Creatives Project’s Studio Residency Program (2011-2013). She has completed residencies at Haystack in Maine, the UF Paris Research Center in France, and at the Skopelos Foundation in Greece. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is held in multiple private and university collections including Vanderbilt, University of Florida, and Baylor. Her artist’s books have been featured in 500 Paper Objects from Lark Books and 1000 Artists’ Books: Exploring the Book as Art from Quarry Books.
