A visual artist with a passion for mentoring young artists as they develop their own unique voice, Ashley Obel is thrilled to represent Nossi College of Art as an Admissions Recruiter. An alumna of Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, Ashley came to Nashville to pursue her BFA in Fine Art from Watkins College of Art. Named as the Commissioner’s Scholar for the incoming class of 2014, Ashley graduated from Watkins Summa Cum Laude, receiving the Samuel Watkins Award for Academic Excellence in 2018.
Within her work, Ashley integrates scientific concepts such as time travel and chaos theory, to reflect on autobiographical events. Ashley enjoys traveling and has traveled all over North America and Europe. In the evenings she straps on her roller skates for Nashville Roller Derby, as her alter ego, A-Bomb. When she’s not on the go, Ashley enjoys spending quiet evenings at home watching horror movies and cooking.
