©Beverley Ashe's Bio In my studio, I’m exploring a kind of dark dream – where secret games are played, and nightmares can be beautiful. The images are drawn from archetype, dreams & surroundings.

I’m not interested in conventional forms of beauty – rather in the kind that has scars, deformities, crooked teeth, the occasional malignance. My angels are not perfect beings – but instead reflect stages of growth where hard lessons are learned and spirit is transformed.

While I often include an element of humor in my work, there tends to be a subtext or an undertow. It’s important for me to face the fear, anxiety, anger – and allowing them to just be. I believe in maintaining a relationship with my demons as well as my angels – neither of which could exist without the other.
