Raised on myths, legends, and dream work, West has spend her life researching the nature of consciousness by exploring dreams as well as sacred art from ancient to modern traditions. She believes "the sacred" can be incorporated into art by focusing on inner beauty, sacred intention, which in turn prompt our imaginations toward transformation, joy, & positive health.
West holds a M.A. in Transformative Arts & Consciousness at JFK University, Berkeley, California. She holds a BA in Communications/Psychology from Antioch, Santa Barbara, and an AS in Fine Arts, Graphics & Fashion Design.
The artist resides in Santa Barbara, California.
