Textural Explorations

Alternative Art Surfaces

with Mixed Media

Since her early years Ashley’s artwork has been based on a felt, intuitive response to the environment, or subject, to capture a memory or sense of ‘place’. Working in a contemporary, expressionist style Ashley has experimented with a diverse range of mixed media throughout her artistic career, developing an extensive visual language of alternative art surfaces and rich textures that she utilises in her studio work. The tactile nature of the materials, her hands on approach, focus and energy helps her to re-capture the sensory experience of ‘being’ in the moment and feeling ‘connected’ with her work as she’s creating.
