Richard Clifton, Federal Duck Stamp Artist

Richard Clifton

Richard Clifton, a Delaware native, is a self-taught artist who has chosen the classic genre of waterfowl as his specialty. His success has been marked by numerous accolades. Since 1991, when he won his first duck stamp contest, Clifton has accumulated nineteen state stamps in just eight years placing him fifth on the all-time duck stamp list for awards. Richard was selected to paint the 1996 Australian duck stamp. In 1997, he won the New Hampshire contest for the third time and in 1998, he became the first three-time winner in his home state. In 1999, Richard agreed to paint the New York and New Jersey duck stamps bringing his total number of stamps to twenty-three over all. Richard's work has been shown at the country's finest art shows.
