Romantic Paris, On The Water, and the Roaring Twenties
Sandy Lloyd is a remarkable artist and photographer who creates marvelous, evocative mixed-media works that are as captivating as they are beautiful.
In the artist’s words, “I have always had a connection with times past and I'm certain this seed was planted by my grandmother, who raised me. She introduced me to flappers and to the quintessential "it girl" of the 1920s, Clara Bow.
“From childhood on I've been fascinated by historic personalities and costumes, and entranced by the romantic allure of timeless Paris. I like to think my work takes you on a whirlwind journey to a delightful place and leaves you looking for more.”
With the exception of two years of design school, the artist is self-taught. Working with a combination of elements that include her own vivid photography and vintage ephemera, she creates mixed-media collages that showcase not only Paris, France but communities local to her home on Puget Sound in Washington State.
Sandy Lloyd was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but has called Port Orchard, Washington her home for nearly a decade. The wide-open spaces and magical scenery of the Pacific Northwest have been the inspiration for much of her recent work, but she also has an extensive portfolio featuring pieces with European and seasonal themed images inspired by historical eras such as 18th century France, Belle Époque Paris and the 1920's.
Porterfield’s is delighted to represent the beautiful, charming and often compelling images of this wonderful artist.
