About the Creator of Free Wills Studio
Hi! I’m Ashley Wills, the Founder and Creator of Free Wills Studio. I am a multi-media freelance designer based out of Columbus, Ohio. In 2013, I started this space, in all honesty, out of post-graduation frustration. After earning a BS in Textiles and Clothing and a BA in Costume Design from The Ohio State University in 2011, I entered into the world of full-time retail, not because it was my dream, but because I needed to have an adult job and get a paycheck.
During my senior year of college and my first year in the workforce, I started having a lot of complications with my health as a result of several chronic auto-immune conditions. After struggling to maintain a full-time schedule and continuously feeling worse from it, I decided my body needed a break. I needed more control over my time, my life, and my health. I decided it was time to put my creative talents to work so I took a leap of faith and started working as a freelance designer.
I started out taking random jobs in costume design and fashion styling while working on my original blog, Style On High. As I became more versed in branding, graphic design, and web design, I also began taking on client work in those fields. Thank goodness I love fashion, because these days I am wearing a lot of design hats! And you know what? I have never felt happier or healthier.
Now I won’t sit here and pretend to be the expert in everything entrepreneurial. No, I’m an artist, and I’m still learning a lot when it comes to the business side of things. But what I do know for sure is that I am a passionate student of this topic and I am determined to make a creative business work for me in my life. I am dedicated to the idea of living a fulfilled life and in helping others find that “something” that allows their passions to be realized. So I invite you to join me on this journey as I share my art, my life, and everything I’m learning. Let’s do this together!

I think this is going to be a beautiful friendship. 🙂
