In the studio with Carly Ashdown

There's nothing we love more than catching up with Carly while she's creating her whimsical artworks.

We're enthralled as she applies paint with complete abandon, dripping it onto the canvas, flicking it using her thumb and forefinger, or even using the flat end of paint tubes to apply it. You have the sense that there is nothing Carly won't try to inject some of her infectious energy and dynamism into her paintings. 

We're exhausted just watching, and say as much to Carly. She grins, replying: "It is quite a process, and there is a lot of chaos within structure."

Taking that as our cue, we leave her to her magic. Thanks for having us, Carly!
