Introduced to us by Key West artist Michel Delgado, Ashley Benton has been fully embraced by residents and visitors to Lucky Street. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design Ashley shows in Colorado, the West Coast and Lucky Street. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the Savannah College of Art and Design as well as in the holdings of numerous private collectors. Her current studio is in Paonia, CO.
Her work evokes fleeting experiences, trying to hold captured stories, metaphors and memories in a permanent state. The process she uses–
pencil, watercolor, acrylic, paper and collage layered with resin on panels—adds to the depth and mystery of her work.
