Ashley Amrit Singh
FOUNDER + DESIGNER
Ashley was born and raised on the beautiful island of Maui. She spent most of her childhood on the island and love to visit her grandfather at his nursery Kihei Garden & Landscaping Co in Wailuku, Maui. Ashley loved spending time in nature and exploring the island. As a past time at her grandpa's nursery, she gathered plumeria or jasmine flowers and made fragrant leis so that she could gift them to loved ones; in Hawaii leis are a symbol of affection, expressing “Aloha” meaning LOVE. After moving to California, she was inspired to bring the spirit of Aloha with her and reflect that in all she does. Ashley is a firm believer in following your dreams and doing all things with LOVE.
Ashley’s lush + organic style and unique mediums reflect her native Hawaii and California which offer lush landscapes and natural beauty. Ashley's Hawaiian and East Indian roots are infused in her art, creating versatile looks of fine floral art. She has an eye for detail and loves to work with various color palettes. Ashley is passionate about the creative process and looks to be innovative by exploring new methods + techniques and utilizing all that nature, and the floral world has to offer. She had over eight years of floral design experience and decided it was time to start her endeavor. She teamed up with her best friend and business partner Evan Brown to launch Amrit & Evan.
Ashley loves owning her own business and being a designer in her home-based studio because it allows her to dedicate time to what she loves aside from her studio, which is her family, close friends and traveling. You can find her cooking, gardening, watercolor painting, hosting dinner parties, spending time with her loved ones, and spoiling her sidekick Maile, her lovely 12-year-old German Shepherd. She loves to travel and is always seeking new adventures and whatever that may bring along.
Her favorite day is Sunday; curled up reading a good book with tea, or spending the afternoon lounging at home with family + friends with delicious food and red wine of course!
