In October of 2004, Ashleigh, age 17, died in a car accident. The quality of her thinking, her natural generosity, her spontaneous energy, her insight, her ability to articulate her heart’s desire are what made her an exceptional human being. Since her death, her family has chosen to honor her legacy of care and compassion by creating a charitable organization. Although she isn’t with us anymore, we want to carry on her tradition of living and loving selflessly, constantly succeeding in making the world a better place, and touching as many lives as possible.

Ashleigh had an amazing artistic talent. Through this cite, I will be sharing her work in numerous formats so that a piece of Ashleigh can go home with you as well. Ashleigh was an inspiration to me as well, and I have continued to pursue art. In her work and my own, you will see many similarities, and unique qualities that makes every piece special.

What We Do
The Ashleigh Delia Woodfield Memorial Foundation offers scholarships to high school students who best emulate her integrity and intellect. Donations are made to quite a few of Ashleigh’s favorite organizations and charities such as:

-Brain and breast cancer research
-To aid programs that specialize in the treatment of terminally ill children and those with special needs
-Asthma and allergy education

In particular, funds are given to a dolphin therapy organization. Throughout middle and high school Ashleigh made and sold her jewelry to fund a child the trip to Florida and the opportunity to swim therapeutically with dolphins each year.

If I could I would tell Ashleigh I am so thankful for her being so gracious and how our world is less bright without her. On her foundation page there are now some ways to give a little and help a lot. And in return…an item she would have loved or a piece inspired by her designs or copy of her work, because in true Ashleigh style she would never think of taking without giving in return. Whether donating ten dollars for ten years or a dollar a year for ten dollars, all of it works.

“She was the best that we could be; she was perfectly charming and perfectly loving. She was a dream. And she was the kind of dream that you remember when you wake up smiling.” – Richard Dreyfus

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years…” – Audrey Hepburn
