Ashley Rehler graduated from SUNY Oswego in 2011 with a BFA in graphic design. At Oswego Ashley fell in love with printmaking. She found her graphic design classes to be great fun, but found greater pleasure in “happy accidents” and the inability to erase a mistake with printmaking. She works for a local media company by day and creates wedding stationary by night. Ashley enjoys the outdoors, chocolate, her two dogs and her loving family.For details about our class cancellation policy, visit our FAQs.
