Ashley West Coloring Outside the Lines

Image of exhibit

Ashley West never colors inside the lines. This anti-perfectionist credo frees her work to be fresh and eclectic. She loves innovative materials -- eye shadow, 3D elements, metallics. She paints with palette knives, bleach pens and sponges, but credit cards are her favorite ‘brush.’  Color is one of the most important aspects of Ashley’s life. Cool blues and purples soar into curving shapes. Hot reds and oranges catch fire. Her motto is "Guaranteed Imperfect."
