Remote residencies coalesced lifetime experiences into expressions of the many layers of our interaction with the natural world, environmental themes, and women’s role in landscape change.Vivian is a multi-faceted artist working in clay, drawing, photography and installation. Her work has been selected in national and international exhibitions. This work exclaims the death by a thousand cuts occurring to local populations of flora and fauna, unheeded by unconcerned and ignorant expansion.
