Shawn Ashman – using art to evoke change
Fine artist Shawn Ashman has always had a desire to express herself. She started her artistic journey as a young girl in Grants Pen and used her art to express her thoughts as she basked in its therapeutic effect while creating. Since then, she has developed a stellar reputation as a globally celebrated artist.
Though her career first started in an entirely different industry, Ashman’s unwavering passion and deep appreciation eventually led her to becoming a full-time artist.
