James Hubbellis an artist who is connected to nature and his inner dreams which he expresses through architecture and art. He sculpts one-of-a-kind living environments from natural materials that provide shelter and inspiration for those who wish to live in harmony with nature. For more than 50 years he has given the world an inspiring vision of nature as expressed in mosaic, stained glass, wood carving, metal shapes, sculpted concrete, patterned brickwork and stone. His art and architecture has been embodied in homes, schools, gardens, pavilions, nature centers, monasteries, museums, and peace parks around the world. He is the founder and guiding light of the Ilan-Lael Foundation.


Brennan Hubbell began creating art as soon as he could walk. Even as a kindergartener, he helped build Ilan-Lael, the art and nature center, which is now home to his parents and Hubbell Studios. He attended Webb Academy in Claremont, California and then went on to major in fine arts at St. Olaf College in Minnesota. In his 20s, Hubbell studied permaculture in Oaxaca, Mexico, under the instruction of Chuck Marsh, the North Carolina– based permaculturalist and designer.


Hubbell’s work is wide-ranging, from large public sculptures to smaller commissions in a variety of materials, including mosaic, wood, and iron, and often featuring water and light.
