Sarah Curry was born and raised in Cleveland and graduated from Shaker Heights High School. She received her B.F.A. from Kansas City Art Institute with a major in Illustration. Her love of teaching both children and adults at The Cleveland Museum of Art inspired her to attain her Master’s degree in Art Education from Case Western Reserve University. She has since been teaching art to high school students for sixteen years.
Ms. Curry works in a wide variety of styles ranging from realism to abstraction. Among many endeavors, she has established herself as a portrait artist as well as a freelance illustrator and muralist. She has spearheaded over ten public art installations in the Cleveland area collaborating with local artists, students and community members. Much of her time is spent using art to make connections between local schools, businesses, members of various communities and artists of all ages. Her personal work narrative revolves around storytelling that addresses women’s roles in society.
