ERIN ASHLEY, USA Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement Erin Ashley is an internationally renowned artist who has lived in NY, Los Angeles and Florida for most of her life. Self trained painter, Erin has applied her diverse background and experiences to the contemporary arts. Erin Ashley gets her inspiration from things most often over looked. She loves the raw beauty Mother Nature creates over time like chipped paint on an old weathered building, rusted metals, trains etc. Bringing out the old with the new in her work enduring a fusion of both has become the hallmark of this rising artist.
