Linda West is a sculptor from Olympia, Washington. She was born in Seattle, Washington.
Linda works in both water and oil based clay. The abstract styling of her work makes each piece an original.
Linda draws the subject for design and form then builds the armature. She adds the clay and slowly the sculpture comes alive. The clay sculpture can be kiln fired then completed with a Raku finish or have a mold made for future bronzes
Linda is an Professional Member of Portrait Society of the Americas, Associate Member of the National Sculpture Society, Associate Member of Portrait Society of America, Associate Member of the Women Artist of America, Associate Member of the Women Artist of the West.
