Oliver West is a Landscape Painter and Printmaker. Best known for his etchings and engravings produced in situ, Oliver has created a mobile studio equipped with etching presses. Oliver’s interest in the subtle changes in atmospheric qualities are captured swiftly after hours of preparation.
The processes Oliver uses allow for a spontaneous and honest response to seen and unseen qualities within a landscape. It is this passion for art-making, that Oliver loves to share with others one of the reasons he’s been running arts courses, holidays and trips since 1995.
Oliver West has been working within all tiers of education and has broad experience of working with early years, primary, middle and high school students throughout the U.K. and Europe. He has developed a portfolio of workshops designed to fit around an existing curriculum.
