Ashley Davies is a self-taught artist inspired by life and the natural world. He aims to create beautiful representations that will awe and inspire. To achieve this, capturing the mood and the lighting in his artwork is very important. "Being able to convey the emotion in a painting is what gives it that immersive quality and also allows me to add my own interpretation of the subject."
Ashley is a keen traveller and takes much inspiration from his past experiences and all the amazing places that he has had the fortune to visit. A prominent theme in his human figure paintings is expressing movement. He likes to bring dynamism to otherwise still images, whether that's through the figure itself, or through a fluid background that juxtaposes with the focus.
