She Carved Her Way

Emilie Brzezinski

"Throughout her marriage to national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, Emilie pursued her career as a sculptor. 'She was always quite clear this was an important part of her,' said Mika [Brzezinski, her daughter]. 'She carved her way--literally.'" -The Reliable Source, The Washington Post

"After marrying, she sculpted for 25 years while raising a family, then had her first solo show in 1981 in Washington, D.C. [when she was 49]." -Wikipedia
