Anita Conti West


After teaching Art in Western Pennsylvania, I retired and moved to Biloxi, Mississippi, sixteen years ago. My Art has always been influenced by my surroundings, and the beauty found on the Mississippi Gulf Coast has been a major inspiration for my current creations. Art was not just my profession but has continued to be my passion.

I am a fine artist and a sculptural potter who interprets realism in 2-D with acrylic paintings and drawings; and in 3-D with clay, making hand built functional and non-functional pottery . The use of color plus an attention to detail, surface texture, and techniques are incorporated in all of my pieces.
