About the Artist

D. Lisa West (Seattle) has been making art most of her life. Sometimes, it was in the margins of business papers. Born in Renton, WA, in 1955, she learned through observation that it was completely acceptable to be a creative. She is currently painting in oil over other previously competed paintings, or over commercial wood signs. Reuse and recycling is on her mind as she paints mostly mundane, everyday items such as plastic containers. She is currently working on a series of paintings she calls “the bucket list”.
