Ashleigh Papas currently lives and works in Johannesburg. She obtained her BA Fine Art degree from the University of Cape Town, Michaelis School of Fine Art. She was part of a group show called “Krisp” in 2011 for up and coming artists. She has always sold art since she was in school, and over the years her style has developed. She has done work for restaurants, private clients and interior decorators – which include paintings, murals, gilding, and furniture techniques. She works in a wide variety of mediums, anything from a mural to a canvas painting, to transforming old furniture to something new and tasteful. In her words: “Everybody has a unique taste when it comes to art and I aim to create works that are pleasurable to the eye, full of colour, and that hold meaning through its individuality”.
