In the early 16th century, where women painters weren’t exactly accepted with open arms, Artemisia Gentileschi certainly changed the mold, as she became one of the most famed Baroque painters in the world. She not only broke down stereotypes, but also became the first female painter in history to become a member of the distinguished Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence. In doing so, she not only paved the way for females but also opened the doors and minds in having the public accept future female artists. With that being said, fast forward to the 20th century where a young, beautiful, and talented woman by the name of Ashley De Vor is now trying to make her mark while scheming to leave her artistic footprint on this world. Ashley is a talented artisan in every sense of the word, and when she’s not booked with modeling gigs or playing video games, she’s painting, sketching, or apprenticing at a tattoo parlor. Like Artemisia Gentileschi, she’s had to endure hardships on her road to success; one of them is being a tattooed female model and artist in this day and age. Ashley has persevered and overcome initial stereotypes as evidenced by her meteoric rise. She is an extremely busy person and Bound By Ink happened to be fortunate enough to catch her on a day which she happened to be balled up in her bed ready to do absolutely nothing but chill and reenergize herself for another all day and night marathon of “Call Of Duty: Black Ops.” Ashley De Vor doesn’t hold back and let’s hope the world is ready for her reign.
