Ashlie Gonzales is native to Clovis, New Mexico. Born and raised there, her background serves as an inspiration for much of her art.
Currently Ashlie resides in Oakland, California where she is an avid participant in Oakland's First Friday Art Murmur. Stop by at Shashamane Bar and Grill on any First Friday of the month and she will be more than happy to give you a tour of her gallery.
She was a participate in the most recent San Francisco Pancakes and Booze Art Show at 4N5 Gallery on Mission Street. Her surrealist art is a juxtapostion of innocence, humor and spook. She makes an impact reminiscent of dreaming just before waking. Her style reminds me of the early works of surrealist painter Remedios Varo. Ashlie Gonzales is an artist to keep an eye as her work expands.
