Hi, I’m Ash ~

I’m a multidisciplinary artist, writer, researcher, and social entreprenuer.

In my studio practice, I use diagrams, paintings, objects, and time-based performance to create metaphysical maps.  

As a human-centered design researcher, I use data to increase equity of access within public sector digital experiences.
