Her work engages with the environment, science, art and community, bringing her into contact with engineers and artists alike. She is a practical visionary, an acclaimed artist, a familiar name in art schools and internationally known, especially for her work in China, designing the Living Water Garden in Chengdu, Sichuan, China and working with the team on the Olympic Forest Park, Beijing, China. The special integration of art and science in her work gives her a great depth of collaborative experience. She invites and empowers many to know their waters and take charge of their right to water. Her work embraces both a knowledge of water molecules and its functions in creating life as well as the practical aspects of planning and design for resilience and complexity.
