I saw Christina West's show at the Bray when I was driving from Portland to KC in August 2007. Her website is a little bare in my opinion. There's no talk about her work, her inspirations or methods. I can tell you that her pieces are all smaller than life size and that she attains the color through acrylic paints, not glazes. I really enjoy the color combinations and the way it intersects the body. In person these pieces have a tendency to make you feel uncomfortable at first and I love it when sculpture hits me on a gut level.
