Hope Ainsworth is a Filipina-American artist living in St. Louis, Missouri. After studying many forms of fine art at the University of Missouri and holding jobs and apprenticeships with other artists and makers, Hope is a mixed-media artist. Painting mostly with glue, the collaging of materials and layering of mediums is a continuous experiment; no two paintings follow the same process. She plays with peculiar color combinations and incorporates elements of texture, dimension, and movement. Through environment and character development, she reaches toward human behavior along with cultural and societal norms. Utilizing experiences of her own and those close to her, she seeks satire and holds these moments as though they exist in another world close to our own.
