WindDriven Studios

Wind can be commonly classified by its scale, speed, and what types of forces cause it, the regions in which it occurs, and its effect.

Artist Ashley Hope Carlisle founded WindDriven Studios LLC in 2015. Originally from the Southeast U.S., the wind has been a constant in her life, whether through hurricane force or simply a Wednesday in Wyoming and is often a theme within the work she makes. Ashley  brings expertise in design, fabrication, and education with every idea realized. With over 20 years of experience, WindDriven Studios LLC strives to be carried towards new and exciting projects within the public art realm.


Ashley Hope Carlisle is currently an artist and Associate Professor of Art in Sculpture at the University of Wyoming.  She has held this position for the past 14 years and has created art in the form of sculpture and drawing for the past 23 years.

As an artist, Ashley has been the recipient of the ISC Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award, has exhibited all over the south and east coast, New Mexico, Colorado, Italy, London, and was chosen as a Fellowship Artist Grant Recipient by the Wyoming Arts Council for 2007.  Ashley is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, but has comfortably found the west to be her home away from home. She resides in Laramie Wyoming with her husband David Jones, and their son Dylan Elijah.
