Sandiford is an award-winning, self-taught artist based in Jersey City, NJ. She was a participant in the Career Coaching Program at Arts Unbound in 2015. In the past four years, her work has been included in more than fifty exhibitions in museums and galleries including the Visual Art Center of New Jersey, and the Montclair Art Museum.
She writes, “We all wear masks. Masks to pretend, to hide or just to put our best face forward in a Selfie. Using conflict as a starting point, I allow the materials to take over and construct a mask to protect myself. What may start off as an ugly statement, in the end, becomes something beautiful."
