Ashley Hyland was born in the USA and grew up and studied there and in England.  Childhood holidays took her to beautiful places: Charleston, the Appalachian Mountains, the Shenandoah Valley and to see paintings in New York and Washington, D.C.  For over 20 years, Ashley has lived in England and Wales:  Hampshire, Herefordshire, East Sussex, Tyneside, Greater Manchester, Nottinghamshire, the Wye Valley and South Wales. Her British adventures have been complimented by trips to colourful countries: Bulgaria, Tunisia, Southern France, Monaco, Amsterdam and Malaga.


She has visited the birthplaces and studios of painting masters, studied the light and the landscapes they lived in and seen some of the most famous paintings in the world.  Ashley works in watercolour when she travels and makes large oil paintings in her studio.

Her paintings are held in private collections in England, Wales, the USA and Australia.        ©2018 Ashley Hyland
