Custom sculpture work. Each one of the pieces are as unique as you, because they are you. They are not molded or poured. They are 100% the essence of you and all that makes you the beautiful being that you are.
This experience goes beyond a gorgeous art piece to hang in your home. It a journey into self love and realization. Our time together does not end at the completion of our session.

I am Ashlie Megrichian. I’m a mom, artist, coach and mentor, lover of the human form and have a wanderlust soul.
I find it only fair to share with you my story, since hearing yours is the biggest part of creating your art.
The first time I took a casting off of myself I saw ME. Myself the rawest, purest form. Not made up, not clothed, not perfect…. stripped. Just the outline of me, every imperfection coming through. And in that moment, I fell in love.
I fell in love with the woman I had lost. The woman that I tucked away to fit the mold of what was expected. In that moment I took myself back.
As I built layer by layer over the next month I learned to cherish a body that carried my son for 9 months, give thanks and love to the breasts that nurtured him and no longer looked perky, to give thanks that I am healthy and capable of molding my life to what I want, just as I mold and transform the material beneath my hands.
When I finished that piece and hung it on the wall facing my bed, I sat there and just quietly thought to myself, “Ashlie, you are beautiful and strong and unstoppable.” There are days that I feel none of that, until I open my eyes and see that sculpture facing my bed and I remember to live my life, BARE.
LivingBARE was conceptualized from a journey back to self love. Self acceptance and communication. I have always been happiest when working with my hands and helping others.
I truly believe that art is therapy. For me it is creating it, for others it is collecting or just admiring it. My passion for helping others is pronounced in my work. Each piece is as unique as my client. They have told me that the process is therapeutic, loving, calming, and accepting.
I ask my clients to tell me the story of why they chose to do a piece and why that part of their body.
We have these conversations as we go through the process. We laugh, we cry and we sometimes just spend the majority of our time together in quiet. We listen to music and just enjoy the process. And at the end, without fail, every time I begin to remove the medium from their bodies, and they see themselves in the purest, rawest form I can physically see love and acceptance. This is one of my most favorite times….invoking Raw Emotion.
When I am working on your piece, a candle is lit and music is playing. The only thoughts that organically run through my head is your story; and our time together.
Every layer, every stroke of sanding is you, your story and why you chose to commission a piece. The finished product is 100% you. I am just the vessel in which you received it.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about Living BARE!
Live and Love BARE,
