About the Author:

Lorrie Goulet (born August 17 1925) is an American sculptor and painter, known primarily for her direct carving of stone and wood, and her natural and spiritually inspired works which often celebrate women, families and cultures. Her works are presented in museums, institutions and galleries including The Whitney Museum of American Art, Joseph H. Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, The Smithsonian American Art Museum, The National Academy of Design, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Corcoran Gallery, the Museo Nacional Centro De Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, David Findlay Jr. Fine Art in NYC, The Kennedy Galleries in NYC, The Harmon Meek Gallery in Naples, Florida, and many more. Goulet’s works include philosophical and educational writings and books, and poetry. A teacher and mentor, Goulet was educated at Black Mountain College from 1943 to 1944 and taught at the Art Students League of New York. She continues to create art, publish her writings, and teach in her studio in Chelsea, New York. Goulet’s arts studies began when at age seven she met Aimee Voorhees at the Inwood Pottery Studio in 1932 and continued working with Ms. Voorhees for four, formative years. Her first group exhibition included two of her ceramic figural groups included in a children’s exhibition in 1936 at the New York Museum of Natural History. Shortly thereafter, her family moved to Los Angeles, California, where she continued her education. In 1940 she became an apprentice to Jean Rose, a ceramicist in Southern California. In the autumn of 1943, Goulet entered Black Mountain College, North Carolina, where she studied painting and drawing with Joseph Albers and weaving with Annie Albers. In the summer of 1944, she met Jose de Creeft, a visiting sculptor and instructor, and in November 1944, Goulet and de Creeft were married. Two years later, they acquired a farm in Hoosick Falls, New York, where they worked part of each year until 1968, and gave birth to artist Donna Maria de Creeft. Goulet's first solo exhibition occurred in New York, in 1948. Kennedy Galleries in New York began presenting her work in 1971, and a regular stream of solo exhibitions continued through 1986. Her work continues to be presented by David Findlay Jr. Gallery, in solo and group exhibitions, and the Harmon Meek Gallery in Naples, Florida.
