Acoria (aka Ash Stevens) is a self taught, freelance artist based in Sydney, with a focus on portraiture. After completing a degree in Psychology from the University of New South Wales, Ash has been seeking ways to combine her two passions – psychology and art.

The focus on portraiture, faces and emotions, and the link to psychology, are all intertwined. Ash is intrigued by what makes a face recognisable, what features create emotions, how a little tweak here or there can change the emotion portrayed on a person’s face. In addition, the fact that humans perceive faces as a whole, rather processing each part; the nose, the eyes, the mouth. We process all features together – yet making a small change in the shape of the eyes can make a face unrecognisable.
