She continues to break appreciation records for female contemporary painters and produce a diverse composition of works.
Ashley Collins' paintings are included in collections from Germany to Dubai, Los Angeles to Shanghai, New York to Brunei. She is widely collected by such tastemakers
as Robert Redford, Sally Horchow, Kate Kapshaw, Gianluca Galtrucco, Paul Vanderpool, Wendy Malick, Ringo Starr, George Rosenthal, Blythe Danner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Holly Hunt, Debra Winger and many other corporate and private collections worldwide.
Collins’ works utilizes paper aged by the elements, partially obscured images of her iconic horses, and pages from old books and musical scores. Lastly, she covers these layers of collective memory with resin, creating a unique visual experience.
