Ashman has developed a passion for “Upcycled Art” where she recycles items to create unique pieces.  She completed a collection called: “Fiwi Connection,” for the annual KOTE art festival.  Her upcycled art include: painted wine bottles, mixed media works with computer parts, jewellery and stones.

She also conducts art sessions dubbed: “Paint with Merlot,” where she teaches short art classes allowing the participants to paint on wine bottles or canvas, while sipping on a glass of wine. This was featured on TVJ—Smile Jamaica in January 2016. She also offers creative workshops, classes and session that motivates other using art and creativity as a platform.

Art is truly her passion and she brands her art as “Creativity Unimagined” and hopes to send positive, inspirational and motivating messages through her work worldwide.
