Interests and Personality

BiographyAshley Symeou was born in Bulawayo, Rhodesia (current day Zimbabwe) in 1973 and spent her early years in Southern Africa before moving to the UK in 1995. She lives and works as a Graphic Designer in Essex. Her studio is based at her home which she shares with her very patient husband and 8 month old puppy. Ashley draws inspiration from her past in Southern Africa as well as her love for ancient, ethnic and dramatic art. Colour and light play a crucial role in her creations, as do textures and natural materials.
InterestsIt is with these elements in mind that Ashley incorporates traditional techniques, such as the fiery Raku glazing process, with mixed media like metal, glass and wood to create both unusual and multi-faceted pieces that really own a space. The same love of texture and colour can be seen in her jewellery which has an organic natural edge to it. Coloured wire and beads entwine to produce non-uniform pieces that lie around the neck like a vine of berries. This wire craft filters through into both her ceramic work and paintings where she uses it to bring a third dimension to her art.
MusicAshley’s paintings, based on the Icon’s of old and inspired in the most part by Gustav Klimt, are reminiscent of early byzantine religious work but with modern themes. Again she uses mixed media to create an antique effect, layering metal gilding with resin and oil paints to create a luminous, translucent surface. Though Ashley has exhibited informally at various shows and galleries, this year has been the first time she has set up a website and marketed her work - until now.
