Ashes spent the summer of 2005 working with Shepard Fairey in his Los Angeles de-sign studio, where the richly creative atmosphere proved an enormous source of inspiration. She worked on a number of Obey exhibitions and street art projects in the following years and her photography documenting these experiences has been included in publications such as Arkitip and Supply and Demand – The Art of Shephard Fairey and has also been displayed at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Later in 2005, Ashes moved to New York to work as the Art Director of COOL’EH Magazine, a role which combines her passions for illustration, graphic design and typography. As dubstep first made its way to NYC, she soon became an important part of this exciting new musical scene through the flyers and posters she produced for the legendary Dub War parties. When Ashes returned to London in 2008, she joined forces with some of the most influential and prominent producers and labels in the scene and her illustrations and designs have since graced labels including Deep Medi, Swamp 81 and DMZ. This helped to bring her art to the attention of the Wu-Tang Clan who invited Ashes to illustrate the cover of their 2009 album Enter the Dubstep. Towards the end of 2009, she co-founded the LAVA Collective.
