Ashlyn was born and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas, a skilled interior & furniture designer, and handbag designer.

My first love was photography but I was always interested in finding something more physical - learning to build and create with my hands. In 2013 I was accepted to Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah Georgia for graphic design. While there I gained access to wood and leather working classes. I fell in love with the creation process and the satisfaction of being able to put my creations to use - from custom leather bags to home furnishings. In 2017 I received a BFA in Furniture Design with a minor in Accessory Design.

For the past 6 years, I have worked as an interior designer till the opening of Kaleidoscope Collective in the Fall of 2023. I still pick up a few clients here and there, but my main focus is the store. Eventually would love to have some of my leather creations in the store-- but till then I am just your curator of Kaleidoscope :)
