Artist, Ashley Wright Brings Awareness to Mental Health and Maladaptive Daydreaming

Art Association features Redlands native, U of R grad

From the article:

“My paintings are visually inspired by the natural landscapes of Southern California, 1980s and ’90s nostalgia, and sci-fi artwork,” she said. “I am surrounded by the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest, Joshua Tree National Park, Santa Rosa Wilderness and the Angeles National Forest. These natural landscapes have played a huge part in my life and continue to inspire my art.”

She has a passion for raising awareness around mental health.

“Each painting is a peek into how my mind perceives the world while struggling with dissociation, derealization, depersonalization and maladaptive daydreaming,” she said.
