Biography   Steve Ashby


Born in Delaplane, Virginia, he lived his entire life in that area of Fauquier County near Washington D.C. His work reflected none of the sophistication of the area. He was a rural folk sculptor whose day-jobs were that of farm hand, hotel waiter and gardener. He began carving seriously after the death of his wife in 1962. He did small figures from saw-cut plywood that are painted and embellished with found objects. He also did almost life-size humans and animals, carved from tree trunks. Some of his work is pornographic in anatomic detail, revealing his fondness for "girlie literature."
