Bio


Jill Pelto

 

I am an Artist and a Scientist; I am a Masters of Science student at the University of Maine and have also completed degrees there in Studio Art and Earth Science. I have always loved the outdoors and want to use my creative skills to communicate information about extreme environmental issues with a broad audience. I have conducted research on the mountain glaciers of Washington and British Columbia, in the Dry Valleys and Transantarctic Mountains of Antarctica, over the rolling hills and carved cirques of the Falkland Islands, and around the aqua lakes and ochre mountains of New Zealand. I see nature as a work of art, and the origin of my observational skills. I enjoy cross-country and downhill skiing, reading, running, camping, and spending time with my friends and family. I make art inspired by all of these experiences. 

I am available for collaborations, commissions, and discussions.
