Growing up in the United States of America took me to beautiful places and winning an art scholarship there took me to study first in America, then England.
Settling in Sussex my painting story went full-circle: back to my childhood, settling myself and being in nature. I made a list of things to paint that I saw around me and influenced by Constable and Turner, I painted them all - sheep, stiles, sign-posts, snow, windmills, seascapes, boats. I found my waypost... to symbols of place and home.
I have exhibited regularly across the UK for over 30 years, most recently with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Links to the BBC documentary about this exhibition can be found at www.ashleyhyland.com.
International exhibitions and awards include a Governor's Award and a gallery feature during Superbowl Weekend in the USA. My paintings are held in private collections in England, Wales, Australia and the United States of America.
