Ashley was born and raised in Hong Kong. Her works often reflect her exploration of positive meanings of life in metro-cities, discovering methods to depict urban environments with a combination of traditional Chinese ink aesthetic techniques and western art skills. She used to paint with western media, including watercolor, oil color, acrylic, charcoal, pastels, pencils, etc. But eventually, she chose the most unfamiliar media to persist during the second year of University. Studying under Mr. Wang Qiu Tong and inspired by Professor Fan Di’an, Ashley has been kept trying to learn and involve theories, spirits, strokes, and structures of traditional ink painting as well as calligraphy in her cities, although the appearance is transformed into different forms of pigment, spots, and lines. The infiltration of black and white, bright and obscure colors, expressions of "Qi"—rhythmic vitality and connotations which is what she longing for. She aspires to find a new language of cityscape and metro art as well as to preserve what ancestors had retained.
