{our story} Wren + Roots Collective


Ashley grew up on her family farm in Charles County, Maryland, where she learned the values of family, hard work and faith. She had an experience that was very unique to the everyday norm, and she loved every minute of it. While farming, fishing and learning about life, her appreciation and fascination with the beauty of nature grew stronger. She wanted to harness this inspiration and express it artistically, which is where her college journey began. She achieved her Bachelor's in Graphic Design, minoring in Art History as well. In the summer of 2012, Ashley returned to Southern Maryland and she began working professionally as a Graphic Designer, and also enjoyed completing side work, such as branding and wedding invitations.

Michael grew up on his family farm in Charles County, Maryland, where he learned the values of family, hard work and faith. He had an experience that was very unique to the everyday norm, and the path he chose after high school was no different. He joined the United States Army, and served his country for a total of 9 years. This included multiple deployments, living around the world, and then settling back into the United States where he lived in various areas along the east coast. In the summer of 2015, Michael returned to Southern Maryland for his brother's wedding. This is the summer that Michael and Ashley met, and they have been together ever since. Today, they live together in Virginia with their baby boy, Cullen a.k.a. C.W., and their fur-baby, Tipsy Wobble.

Ashley always dreamed of owning her own business. While growing up, her father owned his own business building houses. They had a wood shop right on the family farm, which turned out to be a blessing for both Ashley and Michael. Both being in love with the farmhouse style, naturally, Ashley knew that she could harness her design skills, and Michael knew that he could harness his woodworking skills, and together they could create rustic reclaimed wood signs that would stand out from the rest - clean, crisp lettering while still being hand painted, on a smooth, finished wood surface that still exuded tons of character. "Farmhouse, refreshed!" This is where their journey with wren + roots co. began.

Today, Wren + Roots Collective signs have shipped throughout America, and they have even traveled all over the world, including Canada, England, Australia and the Middle East. Ashley and Michael want to keep pushing themselves and keep expanding their business - this journey that they started together, drawing from inspirations that they both obtained before they even knew each other... Everything happens for a reason.
