Douglas Senft

(Canadian, born 1950, died 2012)

Late artist Douglas Senft created public sculptures, architectural accessories, and art furniture fabricated from welded steel. Senft's sculptures are inspired by the natural landscapes. 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."

Senft graduated from the Vancouver School of Art (now known as the Emily Carr University of Art and Design) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in 1972.
