On a journey to Antarctica to explore the interplay between water and ice, Ashford came face to face with climate change. She hopes that her photographs empower viewers to see themselves as stewards of the earth so that they, too, can take positive action to preserve the great beauty of our planet. Ashford’s dynamic and vibrant work has been exhibited throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic.
Emily is also inspired by water, and it is her ambition to portray the beauty of water and water themes through material exploration and innovation. Based in Newport, RI, Randolph’s work is in private collections all over the world from the US to Europe to Australia. Notably, she was commissioned for 250+ artworks ranging from traditional photography and mixed-media paintings to an innovative photography-based water fountain for a senior-living community in Scottsdale, AZ. Randolph continues to push boundaries through her paintings, wall sculptures and jewelry designs.
Jessica Hagen founded her gallery Jessica Hagen Fine Art + Design in 2005 in Newport, Rhode Island.
