Her undergrad work-study job at the Nature Lab at RISD immersed her in the diversity and similarity of forms from nature. Her lifelong interest in the intersection of the art and science of the natural world provides the conceptual framework and visual vocabulary for her compelling, sensuous organic forms in sculpture, installations, vessels and public art projects, Eva has presented her work in lectures, workshops and exhibitions throughout the US and in China, Korea, Japan, Australia, Italy and Finland. Her artwork has won awards from the Ohio Arts Council, National Endow- ment For the Arts, Arts Midwest, Pennsylvania Council On the Arts, the McKnight Foundation and the Akron Soul Train.
