Biography

Hello! My names Ashley and I’m a self-taught oil painter, inspired by life and the natural world. Having grown up in the Cotswolds, UK, I was always surrounded by nature and I’m sure this has had a big impact on my art. I absolutely love painting landscapes and animals, and while originally I focused on local scenes, I have since moved on to painting things from a bit further a-field. I am a keen traveller and I take much inspiration from my past experiences and all the amazing places that I have had the fortune to visit. I cannot go anywhere without a camera, as you can never know when the inspiration will hit! Another subject which is becoming a bit more prominent in my work now is portraits and the human figure. I am inspired with themes such as movement, and I like bringing dynamism to otherwise still images, whether that’s through the figure itself, or through a fluid background that juxtaposes with the focus. I paint in a realist style and I want my paintings to achieve a convincing sense of reality as well as to evoke something from the viewer. A key part to my art is conveying the mood or emotion of the scene, that will give the painting an immersive quality, almost drawing the viewer into the canvas.
