Meet Linda Riopel
PCAGOE featured artist for the weeks of August 4th through August 17th. 
(View her work featured on our Facebook page throughout this time period.)    

 
Linda has lived in New York all of her life, calling Smithtown (on the North shore of Long Island) home. She is proud of both her state and the big city of Manhattan. Linda has been working with polymer for many years, since retiring from work at Stony Brook Hospital. Linda is well known for her impeccable image transfers, gorgeous floral cane work and flawless finishing. Linda says this about her polymer clay pursuits: "About ten years ago a friend invited me to a craft session. She was using polymer clay. I was so intrigued, I went and purchased some that very day. Since that time, I have been claying, teaching and loving every minute of my new found passion."
