Paul Ashton BA is an English Painter, based in Yorkshire. His art deals with the character of human emotion and the individual, drawing his inspiration from ordinary people, mental states, the stress of living and the colour gray.

He was born almost 50 years ago in England. From there he moved to California then Vietnam, via an English jail, before finally returning to Yorkshire. Having experienced such diverse environment these events influence his work, and sometimes he feels like an unofficial ambassador of the opposite of successful character aesthetic. Mr. Ashton has high hopes for the future of his career.

He is always innovating with new materials and techniques; he is in constant development and is having a lot of fun in the meantime. For the next years, he hopes to be able to take part in art residencies and international fairs and to travel while exhibiting his art.
