Sarah West
Greenville, NC. USA

I graduated from North Bennet Street School from the Jewelry Making
and Repair Program. After some time working as a bench jeweler and
an independent studio artist, I decided to go back to school. I am,
currently finishing up my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Metal Design at
East Carolina University.

I enjoy combining traditional skills and materials with
non-traditional materials and found objects.

My work is about memories, dreams and events that combine within and
around us daily. These circumstances cause reactions that shift the
pattern of our lives and change our present course. The uncharted
territory of dreams influence us even as they are fading away. The
hint or shadow of a memory serves as a bridge to connect. Aspects of
the past resurface. I use lines in my work to draw the patterns of
events unfolding. The shadows created by the lines are the personal
history of memory and dreams.
