Cynthia West - Deer Woman Self Portrait


"I am a mystic. I see the inter-relations of all life. My works are places of refuge."

     Well known for her visionary realist paintings, Santa Fe artist Cynthia West is also skilled in poetry, photography, digital imaging, book arts and pottery. Her home, where she has lived for thirty years with her husband and family, is a renowned healing center, as well as her studio and gallery. Many travel great distances to take healing in her remarkable art and gardens and to receive treatments.

     West painted for nineteen years in a studio on the plaza. Her works exhibit widely and are in collections all over the world.

      She is the author of two previous books of poetry, For Beauty Way (Inked Wingbeat, 1990) and 1000 Stone Buddhas (Inked Wingbeat, 1993). Rainbringer will be published by Sunstone Press, Santa Fe, in Summer, 2004.
