Susan Kliewer is a native of California, where her family ranched, though Arizona has been her home for 40 years. During the 1970s, Susan ran Marble Canyon Trading Post in a remote area of northern Arizona. A painter since the age of ten, Susan turned to sculpting in 1978 after working in an art casting foundry in Sedona for ten years. She has won numerous awards and recognition for her art: the Olaf Wieghorst Award at the Mountain Oyster Club of America museum shows. She is especiallly proud of the Governor’s Award in 2007 and the First Place Award for 3-D Art in 2008 at the Cowgirl Up! Show at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. Susan says that her work aims to show the common thread that underlies all human experience.
