Jennifer Gilbert Asher studied landscape architecture after a 12-year career as a documentary producer. Her travels exposed her to extraordinary architecture, art and landscapes throughout the world. As a landscape designer, she spent years using nature as her palette, creating sculpture in the form of a garden. Today, Asher’s abstract sculpture expresses concepts relating to rebirth, renewal, and transition and she is fascinated by the impact of bold clean forms set amidst the unrestrained beauty and chaos of nature. Asher was raised in San Francisco and is a graduate of UC Berkeley.

As a young man, he developed a curiousity for the relationship between architecture, art and the environment. After graduating from the University Centre of Art, Architecture and Design (Centro Universitario de Arte, Arquitectura y Diseño), he soon began to explore the use of metal as an art form.
