While there are millions of landscape paintings in the world, few capture the place and time of day Wiltshire continues to master. Her representational paintings convey nature as it is happening – capturing a storm in the distance as it moves across a dark sky or a heavy mist that hovers over a Maine sunset.

A native of Pensacola, Florida, Ashley has lived in Birmingham, Alabama since 1978. Ashley designed and manufactured metal furniture before devoting her time to painting and continues to pursue her art education through workshops across the country studying with several noted artists including Greg Kreutz, Kevin MacPherson, Randall Sexton, Marc Chatov and Tom Browning.
