“I’d like to say I’m not much of an artist as I don’t have much of an education or training... I know also I am not a writer and unless Christ comes in, I am afraid I can’t explain how I did these pictures or why.”
— Myrtice West (1923-2010)

Myrtice West, 1923-2010: Self-Taught Visionary Artist

Myrtice West, a self-taught artist from Centre, Alabama, was a leading figure in “outsider” and “visionary” art. Her work has been called a cross between Grandma Moses and Hieronymus Bosch, and she has been compared with other renowned outsider, visionary artists such as Howard Finster, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Norbert Kox, and William Blayney. Her paintings are in numerous museums and private collections.
