Stone, wood and ceramics sculptor Lorrie Goulet, who also makes drawings and lithographs, was born in Riverdale, New York in 1925. Her education included childhood study with Amiee Voorhees at Inwood Pottery Studios in New York City from 1932 to 1936, and with Josef Albers at the avant-garde Black Mountain College in North Carolina during the war years of 1943 and 1944. At this time, she was an apprentice of Jose de Creeft, the sculptor, whom she later married.

She taught in New York City at the Museum of Modern Art from 1957 to 1964, the New School for Social Research from 1961, Scarsdale Studio Workshop 1959-1961, and, since 1981, the Art Students League.

Her public sculpture commissions include a ceramic relief sculpture for a New York City library in 1958, and one for a hospital in the Bronx, New York City, in 1961; as well as a 1971 stainless steel relief for a police and fire station in the Bronx.

The Clay Club Sculpture Center in New York City gave Goulet her first important one-person exhibition in 1948. Among other of Goulet's many one-person exhibitions are seven at the Kennedy Galleries in New York City from 1971 through 1986. Group exhibitions include the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City, 1948-1950, 1953 and 1955; National Academy of Design, New York City, 1966, 1975 and 1977; Art Students League in 1982; as well as shows at the Museum of Modern Art, and American Federation of Art, New York City. She has exhibited in Barcelona, Algiers and Zagreb.

Lorrie Goulet is a member of the American Sculptors Guild and a founding member of the Audubon Artists.
