Greensboro, NC artist, Ashley Vanore, has turned a life-long passion for drawing, art, and interiors into a full-time career.  Since 2016, Ashley has  created original works for individuals, corporations, boutiques, designers, and galleries.   From abstracts to landscapes, figures to faces, Ashley prefers to use oil paints applied with palette knives, brushes, and rags to “sculpt” her paintings.  Each piece is a combination of methodical calculation and happenstance.  While her work can usually be characterized by colorful palette combinations, each piece is uniquely created.   Her work can be found in commercial and residential applications across the US and Canada. Most notably, it is seen throughout the Grandover Resort and Spa in Greensboro.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ashley has been married to her husband, Richard, for 27 years.   They are blessed with five children and two white labs.

What Inspires Me

I am fascinated by the way certain color combinations evoke emotion and love to play with these combinations in a piece.  My greatest inspiration comes from a love for timeless design in architecture, interiors, landscapes, and artwork.  From classical to modern, I am inspired by the way design and art ignite the human spirit.
