Ashley Ainsworth

Ashley Ainsworth is a representational painter who has special interest in landscapes and the figure within them. Working from life or from reference materials, Ainsworth experiences a reductive process when choosing the information to include in her pieces. Conversely there are windows of time while making where she draws from her visual experience, and shapes reveal their true hues. Without close attention, the colors that make up our every experience aren’t recorded. She finds the resulting paintings are at once distilled and enhanced. Whichever the material, Ainsworth hopes to create one part record one part vibrance in her work.

Ainsworth has been painting for over 25 years. Ainsworth is a graduate of Boston College where she studied business and art history. An active and productive artist in the south coast of New England, she is a regular participant in exhibits and group shows.  Ainsworth works and resides in Rhode Island.
