Clif Travers is a visual artist and writer living in Portland, Maine. He did his graduate work in painting at the Massachusetts College of Art, and received his MFA in creative writing from Stonecoast. His interactive sculptures and paintings have been shown throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Peru, Italy, and Cuba. His writing has appeared in Dime Show Review, Underwood Press, Crack the Spine Anthology, The Bell Coffin Journal, and Maine Character Energy, a charity anthology. His collection of linked short fiction, The Stones of Riverton, was published by Down East Books in 2023. His next project, Three Men, Two Dogs, and a Grave, will be published in 2025.

He is currently working on two art projects. The “Medicine Cabinets” is a series of viewer-manipulated boxes that comment on social illnesses and their possible cures.

Recently, he began a second project titled, “The Trees.” They are mosaic paintings on salvaged wood products, glass, and large tree fungi. The project was inspired by his residency at The Fiore Art Center in Jefferson, Maine.

Clif and his dog Ollie split their time between Portland and a cabin in the northern woods of Maine.
