Ludmer has lived in Teaneck for twenty four years with her husband, where they have raised their three children.   She is a retired dance therapist and program director, having worked throughout her career with older adults.  Laurie has always been involved in some form of creative effort - dance, painting, drawing, writing, etc.  Now she spends her time pursuing her passions of sculpting and poetry. Laurie has studied abstract clay sculpting with Janet Muro at the Older Church School in Demarest, NJ.  Currently she is taking stone sculpture classes with Natalie Frier of the Art Center of Northern New Jersey, where Laurie is an active member.  Although she continues to work in clay, Laurie finds sculpting in stone to be an incredibly exciting and challenging medium. (read more)
