Ashley’s practice is founded from drawing. Her works have been reflections from the epidemics of visual culture and the complexity of human condition. Encompassing drawings, installation and sculpture, she displays and deconstructs weariness and heaviness from a modern world.


Ashley’s work discusses the limitation of spoken words, underlining pain and longing within a highly dense population and its increasing reliance of technology for distractions.


Within her art practice, she attempts to communicate and push forth kindness and equanimity, introducing lightness and encouraging slowness amidst the world of instant gratification and increasing pressure. Through creating works intimately, she seeks slowness and to repair loss of experience. She works within a construct of creating depth and curiosity.
