Westland

Tim West was a reclusive, college-educated artist from Winslow, Ark., who produced unique art for 60 years. Producer and photographer Diana Michelle has documented West for the last 6 years. West's art, as well as Michelle's portraits of him, will be featured in this short documentary. West had what should have been an auspicious start when at 18 he mailed a print and had it accepted into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, and he later sent a pair of works to the Louvre in Paris, where they were also accepted. Personal demons over the years led West to return to Winslow and live nearly anonymously until Michelle found him.

"I'd convinced myself that I'd die without being known. She found me," West said of Hausam to the Washington County Observer.
