    Sisto is known for her figurative paintings laden with symbolic meaning, that frequently focus on the experience of being a woman artist. She received her BA in Art from Brown University and RISD in 1977. In addition, she studied at the New York School the Skowhegan School of painting, Sculpture, and Yale Norfolk. She is a 2013 recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist’s Fellowships (1983–84 and 1989–90), the Inglis Griswold Nelson Prize from the National Academy Museum and School (2008).

    Sisto has presented solo shows at the Katzen Museum of Art at American University, the Maier Museum, The Greenville County Museum, and the Miami Dade Museum of Art + Design. She has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including the 43rd Biennial of Contemporary American Painting at The Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, the Wexner Center for the Arts, Katonah Museum of Art, and the Weatherspoon Gallery.

    Her work has been the subject of essays by Stephen Westfall, Robert Storr, and Carol Kino. Mentions and reviews of Sisto’s exhibitions have appeared in publications including the New York Times, New Yorker magazine, Artforum, Art in America, Art News, The Brooklyn Rail, and Los Angeles Times.
