ABOUT this creative nest

art by ashley triggiano

Whether you’re planning a wedding and looking for the perfect way to entertain your guests during cocktail hour while preserving the precious moments of your big day, or if your wedding day is long gone and you’re looking to preserve the memory of your first home together in a unique way, I’ve got you covered. My mission is to create timeless artwork that captures life’s most precious moments, both
 live in-person and from time-worn photographs

MEET ashley

lover of florals, diy projects, and of course, meaningful artwork


I’m Ashley, an NC-based artist focused on helping you honor the special people, places and moments in your lives in an incredibly meaningful way.

I create affordable, heirloom-worthy paintings you’ll pass down for generations, while sprinkling in a little nostalgia, without the stress or intimidation that “commissioning artwork” might seem to come with.

During countless hours of experience with hundreds of happy clients, I’ve recreated a client’s grandmother’s wedding bouquet with watercolor from a black and white photograph. I’ve had the opportunity to bring a childhood homestead to back to life from a photo depicting only the “remains” of a once thriving farm. I’ve even created a “timeline map” of six different homes that watched a family blossom over the course of their entire lives. No matter what your vision looks like, I can bring it to life with vivid color and beautiful brushstrokes.

MY FAVORITES

the wonderful details that make my life so sweet

On July 17, 2016 I married the love-of-my-life and very best friend. I feel so blessed to have found someone so amazing to share life with

01. MY HUSBAND

’ve definitely caught a case of wanderlust. My husband and I love to explore this incredible world. So far we’ve been to London, the Amalfi Coast, Paris, the Swiss Alps, Cuba, Puerto Rico, St Lucia and the BVI, and have plans for Iceland, Ireland, Peru and New Zealand! (Although, honestly, the list seems to never end!)

03. travel

I’m a Certified Crazy Cat Lady ™ with two sweet kitties, Stella and Luna. If you follow me on the ‘gram, you’ll see plenty of guest appearances from these #craftcats. (They love to get themselves involved with my projects)

02. MY cats

Most importantly, my faith is at the heart of everything I do. I serve others to serve Him.

04. my faith

Words cannot describe the way I feel about my paintings.

I had two paintings done of both my grandmother and my husband's grandmother's house. While both of their houses are still standing in the same structure, the asthetics are completely different. I gave as much description as I could and provided very few
small background photos of the homes.  I will be honest in saying, I wasnt sure how much she would be able to replicate them going on the little information I was able to provide.

But let me tell you, when I opened the box and saw my grandmother's home staring back at me, I was moved to tears. I was brought back to many beautiful childhood memories of being held by grandmother's love.

I recommend this to anyone who has a home and memories in it they want to remember forever.

Exactly what I wanted. The perfect painting of my beautiful wedding bouquet to hang in my house and see every day

Absolutely amazing work! Ashley communicated frequently and sent updates on the pictures. She was a delight to work with and completed four beautiful houses in time as a surprise for my husband on our 10 year anniversary. She even included our sweet dog in the photo!
