Meet the Pinot's Palette - Bricktown Team - Series (Ashley)
Ashley Gardner (Pinot's Palette - Bricktown Owner)
Ashley has always had a passion for creating art and interacting with people. So, when she happened upon a job opportunity at the Pinot's Palette: Montrose Studio in Houston, TX, she instantly fell in love! Ashley started with Pinot's Palette in 2010 as an artist, and has had the pleasure to work over 650 classes and build a portfolio of 68 paintings. Of those 68 paintings, five are top sellers, including the number one selling painting: Whimsical Fall!
When Pinot's Palette started franchising, she was given the opportunity to assist in the development of corporate guidelines for each studio regarding artist training. Ashley became the designated corporate artist trainer, traveling to each new Pinot's Palette to train all the newly hired artists!
On April 12, 2013, Ashley opened the Pinot's Palette - Bricktown Studio! Gardner says, it has been amazing to take all of my prior experience, and love for this company and pour it into my own business. We love being a part of the Bricktown scene! It has been an exciting journey thus far. I have absolutely loved being a part of the Pinot Team and growing with the company!
Now that Ashley is back to living in Oklahoma City, she gets to see her family and really be a part of her nephews lives! Ashley said, I'm so excited about the future with my quaint, historic studio in Bricktown. We're growing as a presence in Oklahoma every day and loving every minute of it!
