After a year of studying at California College of the Arts, Ashley Penning returned to her hometown of Chico to pursue a Studio Arts degree at CSU, Chico. Her previous work has been shown in the Orange Show at The Crux Gallery and in the Erotic Art Show at the RayRay Gallery. Currently, she seeks inspiration from childhood books, woodland creatures, and thrift store finds. Using mainly mixed media, Penning explores the way we see animals in our culture, and the way she would like to see them.
