HAND CRAFTED CHARACTER
Ashes & Kings was founded on the belief that character is at the heart of good design.
Whether in the form of fashion, art, or music - character is what makes you stand apart from the rest. This is why Ashes & Kings creates accessories & decor using hand-picked selections of wood. Each branch has it own story to tell through a combination of natural influence and calculated design. This makes each carved piece stunningly unique and full of character.
Toronto graphic designer with a passion for natural art.
I grew up on a hobby farm North of the City of Toronto. The property backed directly onto the York Regional Forest, fuelling an appreciation of nature and it's beauty at a very young age.
After moving to the city to pursue her career, I began collecting and carving wood pieces as a way to reconnect with my forested roots.
With a background in fashion & graphic design, I began crafting my carvings into jewellery for local markets.
Although I have been creating art for as long as I can remember, I began developing a personal art style over the last 5 years which continues to evolve.
