Artist

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.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

The pattern in the background of this painting was inspired by a William Morris motif. The birds and insects in the foreground were meticulously rendered in oil paint. The final layer was a careful application of an intricate design with 22k gold leaf, which reflects light beautifully. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
