Rosie Sandifer documents the evolution of the artist's career as both painter and sculptor, from painting portraits, genre, and landscape to sculpting tabletop and public monuments. The painting collection includes pastels, watercolors, acrylics, and oils, and depicts her ventures throughout the American West as well as international travels. Her sculptures have narrative qualities and can be viewed at installations nationally. Rather than a catalog of Sandifer's figures, this book includes the stories behind the sculptures - why they were created and their unique installations. Sandifer's life-size and monumental clay originals and the works in progress in her studio and at the foundry are displayed, and the clay-to-bronze process is described step-by-step. Robin Salmon observes that Sandifer sculpts the mundane, elevating it to a special level in her slice-of-life depictions. Tuck Langland sums up her work as, ""portraying the joy of life, revealing a perspective which is in stark contrast to those artists who see only misery, pain, and suffering."" He acknowledges her unusual life as a hybrid artist. ""While most sculptors draw, few are serious about painting. This straddling the world of two and three dimensions is rare."" It is her language of art.
