Hi! My name is Destiny West aka DesWesMaus, owner and operator of Studio West Maus.
I approach art with an open mind and curious nature. Try anything once, and never stop learning. I am primarily a painter but also work in graphic design, the occasional sculpture and pottery, and a bit of glass fusing. My favorite thing is take my supplies outdoors on a lovely and paint whatever I see. Second to that, I crack the studio window open to enjoy the breeze while working on my other projects.
If you like my work consider following me on these social media platforms:
My role as an art educator is to create a learning environment that addresses needs of a diverse population and provide students an atmosphere in which creative thinking is encouraged and developed. People are different, students learn differently and all have different personal experiences, abilities and centers of perception. My goal is to ensure a classroom that addresses the needs of its learners which is tolerant of their identity as human beings and is best achieved by the individual effort of the teacher as well as the student. Finding and making personal connections with a diverse population of learners is something I develop through collaboration with students, educators, community, as well as my own personal reflection and professional development..
Thank you for visiting and I look forward to working with you!
