Artist’s note:
Embracing the Fractal Dimension
light giving birth to the shadows
distinctness found in the obscure
synchronicity created by the chaos
the recursive eclipses the uniquely nonlinear.

Elizabeth (e) has been working with wood since childhood. Having a Swedish cabinetmaker-grandfather and an architect & furniture-designer father, she was surrounded by the love and respect for nature, trees and the beauty of wood.
Since the mid-1990's she has concentrated on creating artistic and architectural wood turnings. Lundburg works out of the studio in Benicia, California and has participated in many juried and group shows at San Francisco galleries, San Francisco Street Artist program.

Says Lundburg: “With each of my pieces, there is a story about the tree that the wood comes from. Most of the wood I use is rescued from large, local trees purposely removed or fallen from storms. Often it is a tree that someone knew and loved. Therefore, the tree is not just a source of wood; it is also a part of history. My intent is to integrate that history into a form that speaks through the wood's unique properties, as well as to expand this statement through enhancements of texture, color, carving, and pyrography. “
