I want people to feel something when they experience my art.”


Peter Ashworth is an engagement artist whose purpose is to inspire people to feel alive, take them on a journey of transformation, and help them live their best creative lives.


“The greatest human emotion is feeling alive.”


He is a creator,  adventurer, ocean sailor, environmentalist, ex-corporate CEO, and life coach whose purpose is to change lives. He is family-focused and also runs a non-profit (Humanity We) to address extreme poverty in small communities around the world. His life purpose is to 


He believes his art should engage, entertain, and uplift his customers to express their creative nature, to spark their imagination, and their desire to live creatively. He has an attraction to iconic life moments, whimsy and pop culture. He has a keen eye for color, progressive design, and subject matter honed over 30 years as a branding and marketing expert. His art is created to be a centerpiece, an experience, to mentally engage the viewer. He works across six different subject areas, each with a unique purpose of creating life-moment reactions and mental engagement with his viewers in the habitats and environments where his art is located.


“Art can help us make sense of the world by providing us with new perspectives, challenging our assumptions, expressing emotions and experiences, and creating meaning.”


His creative process is designed to inspire self-expression, and he creates art to elicit the viewers' experienced emotions. He believes that art is a positive catalyst for enhancing the well-being of individuals, homes, society, and the environment. Great art helps people to think deeper, feel alive, connect with their true self, and feel more connected to the world around them. He believes art has the power to heal, inspire, manifest and create positive change.





“Art is personal, and can help us create meaning out of our unique life journey combined experiences.”

Ashworth's art is designed to create a personal visceral impact and emotions. He has a deep love of both humanity and water, and his paintings are designed to give both impact and intimacy while bringing vitality – a visceral experience within each work. His large-scale canvases are created to give an immersive experience and help viewers connect with their true selves.

“Feeling alive, through feeling inspired, is my greatest hope I want people to experience from my art.”


His creativity was inspired by his upbringing on a farm in rural New Zealand, where he was transfixed with creative thinking, and the juxtaposition of colors and design. Throughout his life, he has traveled and lived in multiple countries of the world, and in the USA for the past 30 years. For many years he has studied how the brain perceives and assimilates information and experiences (neuroplasticity), and creates understandings and worldviews. He now lives in Southern California, the creative epi-center of the world, where he gets much of his creative ideas and inspiration. In his past careers, he spent many years managing luxury hotels around the world before creating six Marketing and Branding agencies, where he honed his CEO, Consulting, and Creative Director skills in business strategy, creative design, and human interaction – overseeing advertising and storytelling for many well-known global brands and hundreds of SMBs.


“Science has shown that colors, especially vibrant colors, each have unique frequencies and vibrations of light, that can positively affect the energy and the well-being of the viewer, and of the room.”


His art follows the science that different colors are associated with different frequencies of light, and these frequencies can affect the energy and vibrations within the human body. Each color is associated with a different energy center, or chakra, within the body. By using different colors, it is possible to balance the energy flow within the body to promote healing, peace and manifestation.

“I want my legacy to be ‘love’, which I push front and center into every moment of my work.”


Ashworth's work is deeply influenced by his personal perspectives, interactions, and experiences traveling the cultures of the world. He shares them through his art, the depth and breadth of his intellectual, creative, and experiential life.


“Feeling creative is one of mankind’s supreme gifts.”


As an artist, he is constantly evolving, growing, and refining his techniques. He believes that art is a deeply personal relationship, different for everyone, and can be a powerful tool for expressing emotions and experiences that are difficult to put into words. Through art, he believes we can explore our emotions, experiences, and ideas, and find connections between them that we may not have otherwise noticed, helping us better understand ourselves and our place in the world.


“Great art must be felt with the heart.” 

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to transformation.”

From an artistic perspective, light and the ocean are a source of endless inspiration and beauty. The interplay of light and water creates an ever-changing canvas of colors and textures, from the shimmering surface of the ocean on a sunny day to the dramatic interplay of light and shadow on a stormy night. Artists throughout history have been captivated by the ocean's beauty, with painters capturing the delicate hues of a sunset over the water and photographers documenting the intricate patterns of light and shadow dancing across the waves. The ocean's vastness and power also inspire a sense of awe and wonder, with artists seeking to capture the majesty and mystery of this vast and dynamic landscape. Overall, the combination of light and the ocean offers a rich and endlessly fascinating subject for artistic exploration and expression.
