Leah Harper is an interdisciplinary artist with a background in art, architecture, and design. Influenced by organic forms and ecosystems, she creates sculptures and installations that explore the balance between nature and the built environment. Her interest in water art and environmental issues developed from her experiences growing up in South Florida. Having witnessed disappearing marine life, rising water levels, and intensifying hurricanes, she uses art to give physical form and presence to the effects of climate change. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
