A native Californian, Andi Ashworth has lived in Nashville, Tennessee with her family since 1989. Andi is a writer (author of Real Love for Real Life: The Art and Work of Caring), gardener, cook, lover of good books, and has recently finished her Master of Arts in Theological Studies. She, along with her musical husband, Charlie Peacock (Ashworth), are the Co-Founders/Executive Directors of Art House America, with branches in Nashville and Dallas, Texas. The Art House America mission is to contribute to the making of artists and artful people who become highly imaginative and creative culture-makers, who continue to mature spiritually, love well, and make the kingdom of God visible.

Andi and Charlie’s home, the Art House, is a 100-year-old renovated country church. It provides the setting for their work, which includes owning and operating a recording studio and award-winning music/film production and publishing companies. Andi is the key architect of the nurturing environment so characteristic of the Art House and its hospitality.

The Ashworths have two grown children and two grandchildren. Andi is a regular contributor to Comment Magazine and the blog at
