Artist's Note

"Although the first piece in my Horn series was inspired by my son's flexible toy palm tree, the sculptures have evolved into an exploration of the complex hidden mechanisms and structures behind the power and beauty of animals," Kristin notes. “I've been passionate about both art and science for as long as I can remember. A look into a microscope at the age of 6 propelled me toward a career as a molecular biologist, and I studied plants and bacteria in the lab for 20 years before transitioning to studio art full time."

About Kristin LeVier

My pathway to sculpture started over two decades ago with furniture: I wanted it, but was too poor to afford the beautiful stuff. So I learned to make it, and got bit hard by the woodworking bug in the process. I began sculpting wood 11 years ago, inspired by my two ultra talented shopmates, Ben Carpenter and Jim Christiansen. We put together a great group shop where we design and sculpt and build. It's a sawdusty, creative paradise for us and our wood-loving friends.

I work in Moscow, Idaho, where I am inspired by nature in all its forms, by snow and ice, and by the beautiful rolling hills that surround me. Despite being a friendly, maternal type, I love tentacles, fangs, horns, claws. Fierce creatures fascinate me. To me, natural history museums are second only to art museums.”
