Born Isabelle Clara McElwain in 1934, Greene grew up in Pasadena, California, surrounded by the dry landscape of southern
California’s foothills. As a child she played in the Pasadena Arroyo and hiked in the San Gabriel Mountains. These landscapes,
along with the coasts of California and the mountains and deserts of the west, would later shape her landscape designs.
