"The DNA that comprises our chromosomes determines aspects of our bodies, our health and our emotions. But so does our environment, and experiences and relationships with others. My sculpture represents the interplay and negotiation between the potent forces of nature and nurture, which both have enormous impacts on our lives and mold each of us into unique people we are."

Kristin LeVier is a former molecular biologist-turned-studio artist who creates contemporary sculpture at the intersection of art and science to remind us of our intimate connection to the breathtaking spectacle of the natural world. Kristin has received awards and fellowships from NICHE, Society for Contemporary Craft, Clark Hulings Fund, American Association of Woodturners and Idaho Commission for the Arts. She has spoken about her work in a 2019 TEDx talk (The Art of Science) and a PBS short feature. Her work has been exhibited widely and featured in books and magazines such as American Craft and American Woodturner.
