Ashley Edmonds Cooke is a Psychologist by day and a photographer every chance she gets. She started photographing orchids several years ago and noticed strange beings staring back at her. These photographs are like personality tests. Everyone sees something different while looking at the same thing and that tells you something about the observer. Ashley has since has 9 one-woman exhibitions displaying her work in Annapolis, Maryland and down in Atlanta, Georgia. Her work and story landed on the cover of the LifeStyle section in the Annapolis paper and in January 2013, eight of her Orchid Aliens were included in a book entitled “Flowers in Art” published by Schiffer Publishing on international floral art, with one of her photos on the cover! This book is available on
