Multidisciplinary artist Elayna Toby Singer is a bridge between people and places around the world.

Working at the intersection of environmentalism, multiculturalism and well-being, Singer creates interactive places, programs, sculptures and installations which connect us with ourselves, our surroundings and each other.

Creating within a context of reimagined everyday objects and places, Singer’s work inspires diverse audiences to cultivate personal and environmental balance, and shared stories.

Using materials including wind, found objects, trees, plants, architecture, beads and breath, in collaboration with community partners, Elayna Toby combines making and movement to manifest conservation of global natural resources and cultures.

Elayna Toby Singer’s career in creative place-making began in botanical gardens and arboreta where she created environments and experiences that engaged community in the science, artistry, and multicultural uses of plants, and their role in sustaining life on Earth.

Recently, her community temporary tree art installations and programs received First Place People’s Choice Award for Outdoor Sculpture at the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium Biennial. Her moving sculptures for home, garden and wearable pieces are exhibited throughout the Palm Beaches, Ft. Lauderdale and The Hamptons.

Additionally, Ms. Singer works with governmental agencies and artists across the U.S. curating and overseeing public art design, fabrication and installation in plazas, buildings, streetscapes and gardens. She also led a public art needs assessment and development of a botanical garden “ARTist in the Garden Master Plan.”

As a Longwood Gardens Fellow, Ms. Singer earned her MS in Public Horticulture Administration and Nonprofit Museum Management. Her thesis “Diversifying Public Garden Operations and Programs for Racial, Ethnic and Cultural Inclusiveness” continues to inform her work. Her BA is in Cultural Anthropology.
