Ansley Pye has spent the past twenty years traveling
but has now returned to her native home of San Diego.
In her works in oils on canvas, Ansley explores the sometimes
mundane world of nature, seeing the ordinary as extraordinary.
Her inspiration comes from the details of nature, its
imperfections, and the process of change. Ansley chooses
her subjects based on the beauty in the imperfect, and
finds the unique and original in the torn or blemished.
Seeking to glorify, what is often regarded, as without
meaning, into an up-close and then symbolic image that
tells the story of a moment of life. Her studio’s
name Daemon is derived from the Greek word meaning to
breathe the spirit of life into an inanimate object. Thus
her studio’s name describes what Ansley attempts
to accomplish in her work.
