Ashley Zhurawel

As a Printmaker and Visual Arts Educator, inspiration for my subject matter comes from: myths and legends, the controversial topics of science versus religion and fictional characters. Inspired by my mentor Rew Hanks, who originally influenced my printmaking career, through his extraordinary artmaking practice and positive encouragement.
