Sandy Clift

Her work has been accepted in many local and regional, as well as national shows.

According to Clift, “My work is the result of mixing various media. I try to create unique surfaces using tissue paper, packaging paper, mat medium, glue, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, etc. Then I combine the more intuitive and emotive surface with a technically detailed drawing. I create the drawing and the surface and attempt to meld the two elements to create a unified, finished piece. At times, the surface is the source of inspiration; at other times it is the image itself.”

To honor her as August’s Artist of the Month, Riverside Artisans is holding a free drawing for one of her prints.

Just stop by the shop at 191 W. First St. to fill out a raffle ticket to register for the drawing at the end of the month.

No purchase is necessary.

The winner will be notified at the end of August.
