Born and raised in Dumas, AR, Susan (Holley) Williams is a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, where she studied art and interior design. Susan began her early career as a professional interior designer in Little Rock, AR. She continued her profession as a designer while teaching high school art for the Little Rock School District. She furthered her professional training by studying under two of the most recognized sculptors of recent times, Ev Angelo’s Frudakis of Colorado and Martine Vaugel of Paris, France. Inspired by works of 16th century master sculptor, painter and architect Michelangelo, Susan embraces both sculpture and interior design with great passion. It is for this reason she was selected as one of the designers for the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation Building and personal office. Her pursuit of excellence and commitment to civic concerns have earned her governor and trustee appointed positions to numerous boards of directors, notably, the Arkansas Art Center, the Arkansas Humanities Council, and the AR Sculptors Guild. Susan’s work has been exhibited and/or purchased by the Historic Arkansas Museum, the Cox Museum, the Winthrop Rockefeller Museum, the Mosaic Templars Museum, the African American Art Exhibit in Louisville KY, The New Power Generation show at Hampton University in Hampton VA, and The National Sculptors Guild. Susan has lived in Chicago since 2006.
