Susanne Ruseler was born in Rotterdam. She started sand sculpting in 2003, while she was studying biology and living in Utrecht. During her study she discovered that she loved creating sculptures and started sculpting more and more. After receiving her masters degree in animal behavior and ecology, she started her own sculpture company also working with other materials such as snow, ice, foam and concrete and she has been sculpting full time since 2008.
She really enjoys alternating between materials, but mostly works with sand, her favourite material. She has travelled extensively all over the world working on projects, events and competitions.
