PATRICK DOUGHERTY is an American artist born in Oklahoma in 1945. He studied art history and sculpture and, combining his carpentry skills with his love of nature, he began to study primitive techniques of building and to experiment with tree saplings as construction material. His work quickly evolved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental scale environmental works: 150 amazing twig art installations that have sprung up all around the world since 1982.
