Kay West: My leanings are eclectic, and I like it that way. Photography: There's something about isolating a scene, person or object that will change in some way the instant after I snap the photograph that makes my spine tingle—in a good way. Rust and deterioration are chronicling passing time. I like that I’m recording this natural process. Jewelry: Along with recording the passage of time, I also enjoy texture and texturing metal and making wearable art from metal I’ve hand-textured. I also incorporate the colors and textures of natural stones; they too have been formed over time.
