About the Artist

Ashley Kay

Ashley Kay’s artwork combines realism with abstract design to create
surreal portraits and scenes. She is often inspired by, and focus on,
human emotion and movement within my work. Her goal with every
piece is to create a scene that helps her viewer see realistic elements or
the people that they see in everyday life through a more inspiring and
magical lens. Ashley attended Buffalo State for Fashion Merchandising
and received a B.S. in Art.
