Portland native Asa Bree Sieracki has always had a call for the wild creative. She started making jewelry and selling it online at the age of 14, and later worked as a make-up artist for MAC. Now her medium is of a smaller scale.
Asa is a nail art connoisseur at Fingerbang and she is in such high demand that many of her reservation books are closed. Elle Magazine named her a global influencer, and her work has been featured on MTV Australia, Nylon, Refinery29, and PopSugar. Her client list goes beyond her daily customers to include: Nike, Adidas, and Weiden + Kennedy. She is also a frequent contributor to industry standard magazines such as NailPro Magazine and Nails Magazine. When she is not painting small scale, she hand-paints leather jackets under the name Aces High Trading Company.
Asa took part in the WeMake Celebrates conference in October. She along with four other local entrepreneurs shared their story in a 5x5 format, five slides and five minutes. Of course she was amazing! As part of the conference Asa also had a workshop that brought attendees from all over the globe in to attend—from British Columbia, to New Orleans, Los Angeles, Florida and more. It was her first workshop, but she killed it!
