Jane Tsong, M. L. A. 2015 Cal Poly Pomona, M. F. A. 2000 UCLA, is an environmental artist and designer.
Her innovative public artworks in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Reseda bridge landscape, art, and quotidian life. Her proposals for radical public gardens, each growing out of extensive research into local cultural history, have been finalists for public art commissions in Astoria, Oregon and the City of Ventura.
She occasionally contributes to the blogs, LA Creek Freak and Bipediality.
