West's visual art is often interdisciplinary, in that it exploits a myriad of techniques, materials, and inspirations. In her illustration work, she uses a mixture of traditional techniques and mediums (such as gouache, watercolours, brush & ink, etc.) as well as collage, and some digital tweaks. Her work is unified by an emphasis on detail, pattern, and representations of human diversity with a touch of whimsy. She currently resides on the coast of southern Maine and is trying to keep a nature journal.
