Sculpture


Persimmon Tree is very pleased to honor Lorraine Bonner and her creative work in this issue. A respected and beloved physician for many years, she has written: “I was drawn to science at an early age, and throughout my childhood and early adolescence, I harbored a secret goal to win the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology. One day, while studying viral DNA, I realized that I was learning more and more about an ever smaller world, and decided I had to turn that telescope around. Now the focus of my experiments is my own life on the planet, and my studio is my lab, but many of the questions have remained the same.

Lorraine Bonner lives and works in her studio full-time now in the Bay Area. Her website can be found at www.lorrainebonner.com.
