Rue Asher is a British mixed media artist, specialising in watercolour and currently living in Brighton. She initially trained and worked in the psychology sector which provided her with the financial support to fund her experimentation into her artworks. In recent years, she has dedicated the majority of her time to her art, finding herself gravitated towards the style of abstraction.
Asher previously worked as a hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, as she has always been fascinated by people’s ‘psychological landscape’, particularly how humans receive and retain memory, ultimately forming our life experience. In recalling past events, we sometimes distort and alter these memories from their reality, a concept that Asher delves into by the use of mixed media.
