William Watson West


William Watson West has spent most of his life living close to the Yorkshire Dales and the contrast between the verdant lowlands and the changing moods of the moors has inspired his work, which is gradually shifting from the representational towards evocative abstracts.

Over the past ten years he has exhibited principally in London and Yorkshire. He was shortlisted for the New Light Art Prize and won the Painting Prize at Ilkley Open in 2019.
