Check Out the Amazing work of Ashley Peters
Linocut, Acrylic Wash, Pen, Ink
16.5” x 20.5”
About the Artist:
Ashley was born in the small town of Millington Tennessee, and grew up in Ohio. Ashley attended Fort Wayne Indiana at the University of Saint Francis. There she fell into printmaking illustration, which ignited her creative fire.
About Ashley’s Art Style:
Ashley’s art consists of a combination of printmaking (Woodcuts & Linocuts) and illustration, (Pen, Ink & wash). The pieces are often intimate, particularly the elongated sizes. The imagery comes from that of nature including things such as trees, landscapes, a natural female form,(Ashley’s image of Mother Earth) as well as woodland creatures such as her fox friend and fleeting deer. Ashley loves using linear edges to create a fluid motion and overall balancing opposites. The lines are harsh and raw. They cut through the space. Ashley then implements colors found in nature, often muted. Ashley’s works are about her observations of the world around her; as it changes and evolves as well as what is left behind in the process.
