Di West

I am a painter and sculptor.

For me, art is about observing, and my endeavour is to interpret my thoughts into paintings and into sculpture. As an artist, my focus is always one of optimism. I am an incurable romantic. I am influenced by song lyrics, poetry and metaphors and in many of my works, the title comes before the work. Words become pictures in my mind.
Many of my sculptures are inspired from the lyrics of one particular song.
I am fortunate to have won many awards for my paintings and sculpture and I work towards Solo and Group exhibitions each year, my art practice is always evolving. My work is held in major Art Galleries in New Zealand and Australia and is in many corporate and private collections.
