About Jocelyn West
Jocelyn... Visual Artist... Photographer... Painter
"I am magnetized to wildlife, nature and ocean themes in my art. I want to investigate the relationship between my photography and my paintings. There is a style sophistication of imagery captured in my photos that I rebelliously DO NOT express in my paintings. I am inspired to paint and photograph the altering hues of light in my natural surroundings. At my Whispering Firs studio in Sooke, BC in Canada, I am surrounded by tall firs. I find wonder in a creative discovery process and a mindful transcendence."
Jocelyn West graduated in 1998 at the University of Victoria with a BA in Child & Youth Care.
