Ecological artist Betsy Damon has made water the foundation for all her planning and design. She creates large-scale art parks featuring sculptural flow forms and public art events to help clean urban waterways and raise water awareness around the globe. In 1995 she conceptualized the Living Water Garden in Chengdu, China, and she continues to work on large-scale innovative projects, including an award winning plan for Beijing Olympic Park and the Trinity Lakes project in Dallas, Texas. Her nonprofit organization, Keepers of the Waters, provides information and technical support for others working with similar design principles and processes.
