DebAshleyDeborah Ashley

I am an abstract nature and still-life painter living in northern California, but I am originally a southern girl who grew up in North Carolina. I love the process of creating a painting whether totally abstract or vaguely representing the landscape or an unconventional still life.

I knew I loved the arts at a young age and started piano lessons at age five and the violin soon after. As well as music, I was also dazzled by the visual arts and was often on sensory overload drinking in all the colors and textures of every type of art all around me. Studying art and music throughout school, I went on to finish my music degree in Violin Performance and shortly afterward finished my degree in Fine Art.
