Vivianne Lee Carey was born in Millville, NJ. Carl Sandburg wrote, ”Down in southern New Jersey they make glass. By day and by night, the fires burn on in Millville.” As a sculptor that forms metal & glass by fire, the poetic lines are an affirmation of the materials she utilizes in her work. Carey received her BFA from Converse College in 1981, and an MFA from Winthrop University in 2016.

Carey’s works are in several regional and international collections and she has been honored to have received several grants for public sculpture.
