Based in Brooklyn, painter Ashley Buttercup makes a career out of studying textures and movement. She focuses on the relationships between unconsciousness, expression and motion by allowing her brush strokes to be guided by music. She creates emotive abstract paintings using dense paint strokes and a textured surface. In her Warrior Queen Series, she builds up collages using clippings from popular magazines and newspapers. She received her BFA from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in Studio Art and Graphic Design. Ashley has exhibited her works at The Other Art Fair Brooklyn, the Philly Art Collective in Pennsylvania and the Brooklyn Art Cafe in New York.
