Margery Torrey began sculpting as a child in New York. Shaping forms was an activity that went hand in hand with her love of the outdoors and its wildlife. She would roam the family farm on Long Island's north shore, dig the clay from the banks of the pond and create sculptures of the ducks, turtles and anything else that wandered by. Sculpting from her field studies has been a theme in her work ever since.
Torrey began her formal training at the Paul Mellon Arts Center at Choate/Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut and went on to study at Wellesley College, where she earned a degree in applied art and art history. She completed at the Parsons School of Design in New York
