She's been described as a colorist, which the Free Dictionary (online) defines as “A painter skilled in achieving special effects with color.” She shows us a special gifted use of intense colors. There are definite impressionism leanings in Westergren's work, which the same site characterizes as using small brush strokes to achieve special reflected light.
Twice the artist has enjoyed the distinction of showing her work at the faculty Exhibit at The Art Museum of Vero Beach. Various galleries have featured her colorful works of art. The University of Minnesota graduate has guest taught at museums and colleges, as well as served as adjunct professor at Indian River State College. Westergren had a one-person art show at Indian River Sate College Art Gallery . The Mueller Center of IRSC gave her an award for a Solo Art Showing.
She is a figure skater having been in many skating shows. Images of her skating can be found on her website. Also to her credit is experience as a fashion model.
I had to ask her about playing a cameo role in Prince's 1990 movie Graffiti Bridge, which is listed on IMDb as an unofficial sequel to Prince's 1984 movie Purple Rain. Westergren said she was in the setting of a few scenes and was cast as one of Morris Day's girls. “Everyone was nice and professional,” comments Westergren.
