Based in Missoula, Montana, Ashley Meyora has a BFA in painting from the University of Montana. About her vibrant, biomorphic paintings, Meyora says, "The cyclical nature of life and personal patterns of reflection direct my creative process. I use a variety of materials to respond and translate these experiences into non-objective and abstract paintings. Working and reworking the surface, adding and subtracting layers, stepping into and away from a developing artwork becomes a physical and mental dance. This process is a form of communication; a conversation between artist, paint, and surface."
