Amanda J. Sisk

Founder & Artist

Amanda J. Sisk has worked as an award-winning artist and educator for over two decades and is the creator of the artworks at ATELIER SISK.  She studied on scholarships at Herron School of Art and Design (Indianapolis, IN), Indiana University (Bloomington, IN), The Florence Academy of Art (Italy), and The Carving Studio & Sculpture Center (West Rutland, VT).  Amanda served two seasons as Sculptor-in-Residence at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, and in 2013, her work was awarded the National Sculpture Society’s Dexter Jones Award for bas-relief sculpture. She is a 2015 recipient of The Gibbons Prize for New England Sculptors, and in 2016, she served as the first Artist-in-Residence at the historic Governor John Langdon House (Portsmouth, NH).  Amanda has most recently completed a sculpture for Padre Island National Seashore (Texas) and four collaborative monuments for the city of Rutland, VT.  Portraiture continues to be a focus while she is increasingly interested in using all-natural and repurposed materials in contemplative works, which have been exhibited in the United States and England. She travels to where she receives the call to work.
