"My eyes constantly capture fleeting moments & hidden details of nature, objects and spaces; my mind & imagination then weave these memories creating a cocktail of possibilities.
I love experimenting with materials, surfaces, new and old technologies and techniques to create my art.
I am passionate about biomimicry and how nature is our greatest teacher. I get touched moved and inspired by natural geometry and playing with the macro and micro images."
Ashley received a 1st BA Hons in Design and Public Art from Chelsea School of Art where he learnt that any material could be used for his art.
