Ashton was born in 1979 and grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida. His love of art seems to have developed into many areas over the years and continues to be focused on the ocean and landscapes that surround him. Through painting, photography, and design the possibilities are endless and so are the hours that are involved each day; it is an obsession and one that he loves very much.
On one hand he loves the pure creation and imagination it takes to turn a blank canvas into a beautiful painting and on the other he yearns for being outdoors with his camera capturing incredible moments that happen in nature. His recently founded company Southbound Apparel has further developed his love for this aspect of fine art and the fun of using color and design in a modern way.
As he moves forward in each of these realms, he wants focus even more on telling stories through his paintings and photography
