Ashley Cecil
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Ashley Cecil paints from life, rendering highly realistic birds, flowers and bugs over decorative patterns in rich gem tones. The patterns are bold, in the style of Victorian wallpaper or art nouveau (think William Morris). Ashley began as a portrait painter, but was seduced by textiles during her time in London, where she earned her masters in art business at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Fun fact: Ashley hails from Kentucky where she developed a specialty painting horses. One of her first jobs was creating images for Derby campaigns and liquor companies.
