Had a great time camping, hiking and painting in the Smoky Mountains with my husband, his sister and niece from Florida. We stayed at the Elkmont camp grounds right next to the Little River which was very refreshing to swim in. We hiked all around to waterfalls and local sites. David took this photo of me painting the above painting . . . a really concentrating face! SOLD
Meg West went to Philadelphia College of Art, majored in Graphic Design, and minored in Painting. After working for several years as a graphic designer, in 2000, she started painting again full time.
West paints as a localist, focusing her painting in Albemarle and surrounding
Counties, as well as Skyline Drive and The Blue Ridge Parkway.
Meg paints every day and enjoys the rhythm and momentum that comes with a steady flow of painting. The act of painting is what is important-enjoying the feeling of being connected to the environment, herself and the painting.
