Susan Read Cronin was educated at The Madeira School in McLean, VA, and received a BA from Williams College, in Williamstown, MA, where she developed her passion for art and design. Cronin studied in the early 1990’s with renowned sculptors Jane B. Armstrong and Walter Matia. Having spent most of her artsitic career in Vermont, she has recently relocated to Santa Barbara, California.

Her show, entitled Fables, Foibles and Fairytales, has traveled to eighteen museums around the country. She has had solo exhibitions of her work at the Harrison Gallery in Williamstown, MA, The Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester, VT, The Carving Studio & Sculpture Center in West Rutland, VT, The Williams Club in New York City, Visions West Galleries in Denver, CO, Artisan Designs & Gallery 2 in Brattleboro, VT and Tilting at Windmills Gallery, located in Manchester, VT.

One of her 6′ elephants balancing on a wheel was installed in the fall of 2013 at Johnson State College in Johnson, Vermont and number two of the edition was unveiled in 2014 at the Brattleboro Retreat, in Brattleboro, Vermont. Continuing to populate the Retreat campus with elephants, last year, Cronin installed a 7′ version of “XXO” there.
