Artist Statement 2020

Sally Reinhardt’s creative process reflects the exquisite beauty in nature, despite the existential environmental threats we face. Her scientist/artist background provides insight into the ecosystem’s subtle balance between resilience and fragility. Her most creative project and lifelong focus is remediating 23 acres of forested bushland, previously denuded through logging and farming. In restoring the land by addressing soil erosion, water retention and planting native flora, “the land is my canvas”.
