Susan Pelish Biography from her website: Creating custom art for collectors and galleries has kept me very active for the past 30 years in Boca Raton. my glass and cement sculptures, and oil paintings have won many awards, and been featured in important museum shows. As creator of the welded glass sculpture movement in South Florida, I have engineered many public and private glass art installations. The Forge Restaurant, Miami, commissioned me to fill the Pharmacy Room with Illuminated, carved, and colored surrealistic portraiture. I donated an illuminated glass wall to The Boca Raton Down town Library in 1999, created glass waterfalls in 2009, and carved and colored a glass wall 15 ft. x 20 ft. on the Norwegian Cruise Ship, “Sky”. Glass wasn’t the only sculptural medium I excelled in. in 1988, I was awarded the contract to create and install 50 larger than life, cement great white herons alongside I95. The I95 driving public enjoyed the roadside installation so much that traffic ground to a standstill at the sight of this enormous flock. 1999 I was artistic director of the Boca Raton Beautification Committee. where I was awarded the key to the city of Boca Raton by Mayor Carol Hanson for my many artistic gifts to the city In .
