Douglas Senft
(Canadian, born 1950, died 2012)

Late artist Douglas Senft graduated from the Vancouver School of Art (now known as the Emily Carr University of Art and Design) in British Columbia, Canada, in 1972. He created public sculptures, architectural accessories, and art furniture fabricated from welded steel. His sculptures are inspired by the natural landscapes, and he noted, "I work from my responses to the various environments around me; from the intimacy of the flora, the vastness of geography, to the sound of the wind through the cottonwood."
