This study utilizes an interpretive lens informed by feminist values and principles to examine the interdisciplinary connections and contexts of women environmental artists. For the purposes of this study feminist values are considered to challenge social and historical constructs and provide opportunities for inclusion and equality for women working in a particular genre of art. Historical and contemporary literature about women in art, environmental research, and personal interviews provide an opportunity to formulate and expand upon feminist historical analysis. The literature reviewed provides connections to the past and the present of the woman-nature connection, Goddess worship, the Scientific Revolution and systems thinking, and Ecofeminist and Deep Ecology frameworks. This study also explores women artists in history and how these connections may inform, inspire, and impact contemporary women environmental artists. This study deliberately transfers women artists from the margins to the center of environmental art through interviews, analysis, and interdisciplinary connections.
