Art Association of Corpus Christi

Member Artist: Earl West and Ann West


Earl West, Artist

I grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in the Appalachian Mountains.  That background, with four strong seasons draws me close to nature:  The Mountains, the creeks, rivers and lakes.  The plants, the animals, the fish, the birds and the skies covered by the Mountains.  The beautiful colors of spring and fall, the glistening snows of Winter and the abundance of green during the Summer all touched my mind, my spirit; preparing me for art.  I studied watercolor with my wife, Ann West and now studying with Pam Stanley.  

For me, it has been a wonderful adventure of color awareness, water-coloring and a joyous experience with fellow Artists.


Ann West, Artist (1927 - 2007)

Ann started painting watercolors in 1971.  Her basic watercolor instructor was Dot Turner.  Other instructors were Dick Turner, Tom Hill, Al Brouilletta, Barbara Nechis, Judith Bells, Harold Phoenix, Gerald Browner, Dan Anderson, Christopher Schick, Beth Eidelberg, Linda Doll, Stephen Quiller, Doug Kingman, Carol Myers, and Pam Stanley.

She won "Best of Show", first, second and third places and honorable mention in many exhibits.  Ann did watercolor demonstrations for many local and area Art Associations and for several public and private schools.  She judged many art group exhibits.

She taught watercolor for more than twenty-five years in Corpus Christi and remarked quite often that her students were winners.
