About Me 個人簡介:
Born and educated in the ancient city of Kyoto, Japan, Keiko Nelson began her training in traditional and contemporary Japanese art. However, she always had an interest in Western art techniques, which led her to do post-graduate work in Hamburg, Germany at a school based on Bauhaus principals.

In 1972, Ms. Nelson established residence in California where she felt an enormous freedom of expression, moving effortlessly between sculpture, painting, print making and design to express her unique vision. Her artwork embodies a world of her own, which is a unique fusion of East and West -- delicate and dynamic, retrospective and progressive. She has had many exhibitions at museums, art centers and galleries internationally.

For over thirty years Ms. Nelson has worked in collaboration with architects and landscape architects, among them Robert La Rocca. They used many of her outdoor sculptures for his landscape projects, including a roof garden project at Saint Mary’s Square in San Francisco.

She has been involved in, and has done much work in the Bay Area community and helping to promote international relationships by donating time with various United Nation projects. She serves on the art committee of the SF Chapter of the United Nations.

Ms. Nelson’s commissions include the following:

Mural on 8’ X 27’ wall using Italian glass tiles at Children's Hospital in Cairo, Egypt

Art Expo and Shanghai City projects for outdoor sculpture in Shanghai, China

Submitted proposal with Robert La Rocca for a sculpture project at the Beijing Olympics site in Beijing, China

Sculpture of Russian Prima Ballerina, Natalia Makarova; 9’ tall bronze ballerina sculptures installed at the Karkar Estate, St. Helena, CA and Cal Performance Theater, Zellerbach Hall, UC Berkeley, CA

Peace Dove project at United Nations Plaza in San Francisco, CA

In 2015 -16 Ms. Nelson received two Neighborhood Public Art grants from the City of Richmond for a soon-to-be installed Peace Dove Project proposal.
