Ashby Dawson Reed
Having been in Commercial Art all my life as a Graphic Designer and creative type for 45 years and now retired. I have returned to my original passion of drawing and painting, which I have enjoyed as a volunteer board member of a Seattle collective of African descent artists called ONYX Fine Arts Collective. Thru them at Gallery Onyx, I have been able to paint, exhibit and sell a multitude of paintings for the last 10 years thru out the Pacific Northwest.
My work can best be described as Impressionistic as I explore and experiment with acrylics, oils and pastels which are my favorite mediums. I do real life and found subject matter like portraits and urban cityscapes because they create a sense of emotion that I think people can relate to more readily.
I guess my work is derived from things I’ve seen and photo images that I try to translate into a painting that’s hopefully enhanced by the way I see it.
