Suzanne Yeaman

Raised in a creative family surrounded by a wide range of media was the onset of freedom to develop my own creative path. Direct instruction in the arts began as a child in mixed media sculpture at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, D.C. From there I moved to clay and studied with Malcolm Davis at the Corcoran where both throwing and hand building were explored with an emphasis on skill, impermanence, and detachment to personal creations.


From there I found myself drawn to stone; gathering interesting formations, studying geology and beginning to carve with my father's tools on stone at home in my late teens. Later, I studied at Anderson Ranch Art School in Snowmass, Colorado, again, back to clay.


I gravitated back to stone carving in my late 20's while pregnant with my first son, Bryan, creating what felt like the shape growing within. A number of pieces and years later, organic shapes continue to call me to speak through stone. My own exploration of shape, teaching myself the use of tools, and designing bases to allow the sculpture to “speak” is a personal journey.
