Ashley Ainsworth  •  Artist

Ashley Ainsworth has been painting for over 20 years. After  graduating from Boston College in 2008 with a degree in marketing and art history, she maintained a day job in financial services. She began painting professionally in spring 2016. 

Ashley is a skilled painter. Her artwork is thoughtful and representational, but maintains an expressive, gestural quality. She is a contemporary impressionist,  with deep respect for the intricacy of color.  Ashley's mark making is unique to her and she is not afraid of generous amounts of paint or saturation of bold hue.

As a 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.
