About the Artist

Deanna Pindell (Port Hadlock) creates ecologically-focused sculpture, installations, and public art. She designs works that can serve as functional remediation of damaged eco-systems (artworks which cleanse water and restore habitats). She aspires to raise ecological awareness through poetic metaphor and social commentary. Involvement with scientists, community members, and school-children brings a socially-engaged edge to her Eco-Art practice. Her permanent and temporary works use a variety of materials to address the complex issues of deforestation and water quality.

Deanna has exhibited, taught, and given presentations across the United States. Permanent works are sited in Washington and North Carolina. She is a recipient of the 2012 Environmental Artist-in-Residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC, and won third prize in “Beyond Landscape,” an international survey of ecological artists that was exhibited at the Marin Community Foundation, CA, through WEAD. She is also a 2013 Puffin Foundation Grant recipient.
