About the business

Ashley Swinton Photography / Rise and Shine Skateboarding Alliance

Ashley’s philosophy:
“My art is a movement to inspire appreciation and passion for taking care of our planet and recognizing the interconnectedness of all beings.

My ideas are inspired by healing and the natural world when I add a human into the environment. I may notice the power of the ocean and see how it mirrors feminine energy. I may collect ocean plastic and wonder how it feels to be a fish swimming through a home filled with it. I may see wildflowers in the mountains and see how they resemble the female form. There is interconnectedness everywhere you look.

My art is a result of my connection with the natural world – especially through water, the element we all came from.”
