Artist: Ashley Ainsworth

Norton Framing & Gallery welcomes the artwork of Ashley Ainsworth.

Ashley Ainsworth has been painting for over 20 years.  Apart from grade school watercolor classes and supplemental studio courses to her Art History major, she is self taught.  She graduated Boston College in 2008 and did not devote herself full time to painting until spring 2016.

Ashley’s artwork is thoughtful and representational while maintaining an expressive and gestural quality.  She is a contemporary impressionist, with deep admiration for the complexity of color.  Her work is distinctive due to her marks and clear depictions of light.

An active member of South Coast Artists, she is a regular participant in exhibits in Southern New England.  Ashley works out of her home studio in Tiverton, Rhode Island, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
