How Art and Science Inform Each Other for Geophysicist Larry HughesCreativity is so important to us at EnSafe that it’s in our tagline – “Creative thinking. Custom solutions.” For us, it’s the ability to turn new, imaginative ideas into reality. It’s applying science in clever – even artistic – ways that transform our lives. For Larry Hughes, PG, one of EnSafe’s geophysicists, creativity grows from his practice of both art and science. As an Artist in Residence (AiR) for the US National Park Service for the last six years, Larry spends a few weeks every summer leading art workshops, painting trailside, and being a good will ambassador to the park’s national and international visitors.
