Meet your Instructor:
Ashley Marazzo of Midgard Metal Works

Ashley Marazzo is an eclectic creature who can usually be found in her shiny and sage infused workshop, creating one of a kind musings  which declare that they must exist outside her cranium.

She was raised in Niagara Falls; the nature of the region dug its roots deep into her spirit and flows through her hands with the art she creates. Her upbringing in Niagara became the catalyst for her adoration of history and nature.

Ashley is a self taught artist who strives to create bigger, bolder pieces to reach beyond the veil of the everyday and transport the viewer to a different world, evoking inner revelations.
She is inspired by history ,mythology, nature and every day events.
