Portland, OR 📍Female Artist 💥 #artbyayla Art available for purchase unless noted sold in caption 🦋🦄
If you know me, you may know my art business started out as making fused glass jewelry. My grandma and I made necklaces for my friends as Christmas gifts when I stayed over at her house for the weekend. ☺️ My friends liked them, and it inspired me to sell them at farmers markets when I was 13, before I even knew I liked to paint. ✨Over the years my work has evolved, but I’ve always been a fan of the moment when someone connects with what I make, and it matches them perfectly. I love making people feel more confident to be themselves. I make art for those moments— the moments when the art isn’t about you anymore and it can take on a new life. I’m so thankful to have people to make things for 💛✨ here’s the finished jacket!! Thanks Julian for being you, making a bold statement, adding more color and sparkle to the world, and taking pics in the rain😂✨(swipe for more pics & video) ps: can’t wait to show you guys some more clothing that’s been in the works! Coming soon!! 👀🎉

HERE’S MY UNRELEASED NBA BLAZER POSTER DESIGN! 💥 So excited to finally be able to share it with you all!! 💥🏀💥 honestly, I’m still pretty bummed that the season got cancelled due to covid... I wasn’t able to put my art out into the world in the way that I imagined 💔 But here we are a year later... and it’s still hard to say what’s to come. The most important part is everyone’s health & safety until we can get through this. 

I’m super happy to let you guys know there’s a poster print of my design that’s been matted, framed & signed by the Blazer Team!! It’s up for auction online until the 22nd! 🎉🎉 Mine was for the Blazers vs. Dallas home game that was scheduled to be released just ONE WEEK after the season got cancelled. I was going to be on the Jumbotron at the Moda Center and 150 of my posters would’ve been sold there. 🤯🤯 Everything happens for a reason but it’s been hard thinking about what could have happened, & how pivotal it could have been for my art career had this virus never existed... dang covid 🙄 anyways... it’s 1 of 8 unreleased designs up for bid!! Check it out! Auction is live now, so go bid or take a look at the other designs that are up for grabs! ☺️💥 Mine is already up to $300 which is super rad 😱 LET’S RAISE SOME CASH! All the proceeds go to the Trail Blazers foundation so the money will be used for a super cool cause! 💛✨ good luck bidding!! ⛹️‍♂️🏀💥 
Link to bid in bio 💛 swipe for video!!
