Sculptor Amy Bright Unfried was born in Boston and grew up in Massachusetts, lived in Westchester County, New York for 25 years, and now lives in Wyoming. She earned degrees in economics from Wellesley College and Yale University. After a career in finance and economics, she began a search for a different type of life's work. This search ultimately led her to sculpture: several years of courses at SUNY-Purchase were followed by three years of study at the National Academy of Design's School of Fine Arts in Manhattan. Since 1994 she has maintained her own studio.

In her studio, she creates figures in clay or in wax, then has them cast in bronze at a specialized fine art foundry. The works range from small and medium-sized tabletop pieces to life size. Unfried has been in the public eye since 1991, exhibiting extensively. Her work may be seen currently in galleries in New York as well as at her studio in Wyoming; their names and addresses are available on request. For fuller information, see Exhibitions.
