I was never not an artist - and although I had the good fortune to be born to artists who recognized my abilities at an early age - who nurtured and encouraged me throughout my upbringing - I needed no encouragement because, from my earliest memories, I was always drawing, always noticing colors, color combinations and compositions - it is in me, it is me. For me though, creativity is more than a painting on a canvas, a sketchpad filled with drawings or an exhibition of my work. It permeates my life view, my approach to problem solving, my music and my choice of subject matter when I create my visual works and commissions. To me, it is no different than breathing. I am humbled by the possibilities and grateful and eager for what comes next. Marty West
