Westy Copeland has been creating art now for over thirty years, developing a personal style that is colorful, whimsical, and quirky. Her artwork will make you smile!
Westy received a BA in art at Middlebury College, and a MFA in printmaking at RIT. However, life has been the biggest teacher of all, having brought along children and gardens, adventures and travel, struggles and ensuing wisdom.
Painting is a daily, passionate, activity in Westy's sunny Minneapolis studio, where the music is playing, the cat lolls about, and the paint is thrown everywhere. Life without art is unimaginable!
Westy's artwork is full of layers: metaphorical layers as well as actual, physical layers. Paint, printing, collage, stamping, and more are often worked on top of old paintings and etchings.
