My work explores geometric form as it applies to architecture, landscape and the human

figure. I translate a memory of a place or an experience through the process of abstraction.

By observation, contemplation, and repeated layering of paint, the canvas begins to reveal

its particular shapes, lines and textures. The paintings are an exploration of color and

geometric form as well as an attempt to suggest a feeling or nuance that is not cut off from

the psyche and alludes to hidden affinities and elusive qualities.

Westergreen’s work is in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. She is

represented by Seattle Art Museum Sales and Rental Gallery, and Catherine Person

Gallery in Seattle, Washington. Her work has been in exhibitions nationally and

internationally. A native of the Pacific Northwest, she draws inspiration from her

immediate surroundings as well as her experiences as a traveler.
