Artist + Ashley Merlin

Born and raised in New Orleans, I graduated from Lehigh University with a B.A. in Journalism. In 2002, I opened a local photography studio. My work has been featured at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery, University of New Orleans Fine Arts Gallery, and the New Orleans Museum of Art as well as in many local and national publications. I am a member of the New Orleans Photo Alliance, American Society of Media Photographers, Arts Council of New Orleans, and Professional Photographers of America. Statuesque New Orleans, my first book, was published in 2010. I am a board member of the Monumental Task Committee, Jewish Family Service, JNOLA & Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans and American Society of Media Photographers New Orleans-Gulf South.

Ashley Merlin is a New Orleans artist living and working in Metairie.
