Join us Saturday, November 19th from 11am-7pm for Art Gallery Pop-Up featuring artist Ashley Keene.
Ashley Keene is a mixed media visual artist and designer from Dana Point, California. Growing up near the beach, her artwork has been heavily influenced by the local surf culture and ocean vistas, inspiring an array of bright colors that give her artwork a surreal and dreamlike ambiance.
Most of Keene's favorite work is unbound by the traditional canvas, as she prefers to recycle and repurpose a variety of materials, from broken surf and skateboards, to overly scratched vinyl records.
Keene has gained much of her experience working with various artists at companies such as Lost Enterprises and O'Neill Clothing. In recent years, she has contributed to public art in South Orange County through participation in programs such as the Laguna Beach Banner Competition and the San Clemente Street Art Program. In 2013, Keene was chosen from over 1,000 artists as the only local artist to paint an elephant for the Elephant Parade exhibition in Dana Point.
