Susan Luery was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her gift for sculpting was refined in Carrara, Italy. She now maintains her studio in a sea side town outside of Boston, Massachusetts.
Susan's early work delved into romantic and mythological subjects and was soon recognized by private collectors. Her dramatic "Promethean Radiation" was presented to Prince Charles and Princess Diana on the occasion of their wedding in 1981. She has been sculpting everything from sports legends to ballerinas ever since.
Those visually arresting figurative sculptures can be found in private, public and museum collections throughout the world. They include Naples Philharmonic Sculpture Garden, the National Gallery of Bermuda, the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and Oregon Ridge, the summer home for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, among many others.
Today Susan is best known for such monumental works as "Babe's Dream", the 16-foot sculpture honoring George Herman "Babe" Ruth standing in front of Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland; the "George Washington-Visionary" monumental sculpture at the historic site of Fort Cumberland; as well as unique and limited edition sculptures. "George Washington-Visionary" has been accepted into the Smithsonian Museum Inventory of American Painting and Sculpture.
From major league stadiums and museums to gracious homes and gardens, Susan Luery's varied works of sculpture never fail to elevate and inspire.
