I was born this way, 60% blind. At Christmas time my mom said “look at that beautiful tree!” I said “What tree?” I was quickly diagnosed at age 5 and subsequently given tiny little thick glasses. Suddenly I saw the light and now I see the world as one giant sometimes fuzzy composition. I can paint 2 inches from my work without corrective lens. I have recently begun to paint larger canvas and this is a true challenge!

I mentally compose almost every moment that I see as a painting. My senses of smell and hearing developed to a super level because of my lack of sight. Sometimes this gift is overwhelming but I cannot control it nor do I usually want to do so. The minutia of our planet is full of beauty if you just STOP and look.

My creativity is sparked by golden low lights of dawn and dusk and my interests are highly diverse. I will frequently add the form of a beautiful woman to the beauty of Mother Nature. Much of my latest work is more personally symbolic and frequently a reflection of the puritanical changes in society as a whole.

In the past few years as I develop courage I have shown my work at Art Plus and Goggle works twice. Also IX (second string), Rosemont College 101 Artists and recently an exhibition at One Plus Gallery via NAWA in Manhattan. I am currently one of 5 featured Artists in Inspiration Arts Magazine October . You can see my work in person this fall at the Chester County Art Walk in Goshen, Chester County. Additionally I was featured on the Philadelphia Society of Watercolor website in October 2023. I recently submitted work to the CCAA Member show.
Thank you for your consideration,
Kathryn Ashleigh
