Artist biography: Born and raised in southern California, Susan Kliewer prepared sculptures for bronze casting at a foundry for many Arizona sculptors such as John Hampton, Joe Beeler, and Buck McCain. In 1988, she began creating her own sculptures and won the People's Choice Award in 1991 at the National Sculpture Walk in Sedona, Arizona. Her work depicts the Navajo people whom she has lived beside and been inspired by for the past forty years.
