Originally growing up in a tiny coastal town of 500 people, Ashton trained as a dancer before moving to her true passion of theatre making and acting.
Graduating from the VCA in 2015 with a sell out, self devised physical theatre show called The Human Project, 2016 saw her tour to Adelaide Fringe. Since then, Ashton has devoted her time to developing her physical skill set and applying this to new and existing theatre shows.
Ashton has worked with PACT Theatre for their prestigious Vacant Rooms Project, performed as the lead in numerous short films, and developed and written a sell out 2016 Melbourne Fringe show. Her work focuses on the intimate relationships humans form and is driven by dissecting the complex components of the human body/mind.
