About the artist 

Dori Settles is a multi-passionate artist working primarily with salvaged (recycled materials) to bring awareness to the environment and encourage others to make small changes to create a positive impact.

Settles is a child of the 70's. Some of her fondest memories involve scented markers. Her undergraduate studies in Sign Language Interpreting, Communications and Linguistics also included several elective art courses. After working as an interpreter, and later a software test engineer, she "retired" to motherhood, and began to pursue creative endeavors as the children became more independent. Settles has taken workshops with several internationally recognized glass artists and painters and participates in art shows locally and nationally.

Her favorite animal is the elephant; they are highly intelligent, sentient beings with deep concern for others. Her garden is full of Nebraska-native perennials, and although it is full of milkweed, she and her family rarely see Monarchs.
