About Jenn Ashton

"Working mainly in bright Acrylics, inks and collage, I want my art to be accessible to everybody. I want my paintings to find the naive child and deep down belly laugh that lives inside every person and connect to that joy place, as that is where my art comes from.

To that end, my paintings are authentic and simple and often accompanied by a verse or rhyme that can arise as I create a piece."

North Vancouver author and artist Jenn Ashton is no stranger to creativity. Coming from an artistic family she has lived her life bringing creative flair to all her projects large and small.

From the non-profit Boardroom and the challenges of being a young parent, to producing music and enjoying scholarly pursuits, Jenn Ashton is known for her originality, resourcefulness and vision.
