Caroline Ashton has taken in the full spectrum of fine art, exploring watercolors, acrylics, oils, printmaking, and ceramics. In her paintings, she weaves faceless figures and bodies together in dynamic movements, costumes, and settings, expertly using colors and images to shape her artistry. She begins by blocking in her shapes with thin washes, then layers translucent or opaque pigments for luminosity and a kaleidoscope of rich colors. "My paintings control the uncontrollable, and I am always surprised by the outcome," she says. Ashton was born in Texas and raised in South America.
