Ashley Thimot is a Canadian artist currently residing in Edmonton, Alberta. Born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Ashley was artistic at a very early age by drawing in books and on the baseboards in her mother’s house.
Ashley decided to further her passion by studying fine arts at Mount Allison University in 2003. After a year of study, she decided to work for an undergraduate degree in design, which she received from NSCAD University in 2007.
Ashley then moved across the country to the West where she has worked in the design field for the past eleven years. In 2012, she found home in Edmonton and currently lives with her husband, Rob and daughters, Rose and Daphne, along with their dog, cat, and a chinchilla.
Presently, Ashley is exploring painting the seemingly mundane urban landscapes found within her city’s neighbourhoods. Through thoughtful composition and dramatic lighting, she wants to show the viewer the beauty of her everyday surroundings.
