Arts Manawatu

Supporting the creation and appreciation of the visual arts in Manawatu...and beyond

Lucy Ashdown

I am an artist, now living in Palmerston North. I’ve enjoyed painting all my life, exploring paint and how it can work with textures and media – inks, collage, paper, and canvas - to create oils, watercolour and mixed media images.
I’m inspired by colour and light playing on the landscape, on flowers and in still life; my challenge is creating mood in two dimensions through the use of colour and texture.
