Ashley Toner has always loved creating and sharing her love of nature by connecting others through her expressive and colourful paintings. Enjoy her unique style and magnificent use of texture and colour as you escape into one of her many tree or floral scenes. Her humble beginnings in the countryside outside the small and charming town of Parry Sound, Ontario, provide much of her inspiration where she grew up surrounded by the peaceful trees and beautiful shores of Georgian Bay.
She practices mental quietude and becomes fully immersed in the creative moment as she translates nature to canvas through eloquent and elaborate strokes and layers of impasto paint. Her paintings burst alive with vibrant colours, expressive movements and exquisite textures that are created with palette knives.
Ashley graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Fine Art from McMaster University. She has participated in numerous art exhibits. Her paintings are collected internationally and are held in many private collections.
Ashley is always available for custom commission pieces. She can work from your photos, visions and ideas. Each piece is an original and unique creation for the collector.
