Ash Almonte, a renowned artist born in Abilene, Texas in 1983, has captivated audiences nationwide with her innovative style. Her layered figurative aesthetic incorporates abstract expressionist elements, resulting in a distinctive artistic vision.

“The Chandelier series was created to express how we inspire one another,” explains Almonte. “As an artist I am attempting to portray this idea visually through the expression of light, the light we provide one another.

Throughout all my works are hidden winding abstract circles, representing unconditional love without an end or beginning.”
