Ashley specialises in woven textiles, exploring tactility, colour, and creating juxtapositions within her work.
Her main aims are to create happiness for the consumer, create textiles with texture that play with the consumers senses, work within sustainable production, and create long lasting products. Her processes include collecting and creating her own research such as drawing, photography and collage and then translating this into a woven textile through experimenting on the loom, often with existing materials to reduce environmental impacts and create unique products.
Her work is inspired by nostalgia from childhood and teenage years, taking inspiration from vintage toys, anime, emo culture and the act of play.
