Scene at the Selden exhibiting artist 2014

“According to Ashikis, she began to feel like an artist after receiving “thank you” emails as people walked by her exhibits. The emails flowed in with gratification for her simply being around. Now, she feels as if she’s just known, and the appreciation is gone. Now, it’s, “Your art could be in a CD!” vs. an $800 print sale made earlier in the week. “It’s like I get an opportunity to be in their CD…but they don’t realize they only know my name in the first place, because my art is worth being paid for.” In fact, Ashikis finds that some people pay more than the agreed upon price, because of what a great job she’s done. Ashikis prides herself in her work, and refuses to finish a job until she can do it right.”
