Sarah Grace Cheek is a designer, maker and artist based in Earlysville, VA. She holds a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Craft & Material Studies where she focused in furniture and textile design.
After leading a production style wood shop for the last 4+ years, Sarah Grace made the leap in summer of 2022 to pursue being an artist full time. Her work centers around nourishment, usefulness and joy. She’s enjoyed venturing into the realms of more representational art and exploring relief carvings. Sarah Grace uses hand carving and power carving techniques to create most of her work. Some of her inspiration includes bones, rocks, salvaged materials and antique textiles including late 19th to early 20th century quilts, just to name a few things.
Her work is currently available at Accoutre in Richmond, VA and The Barn Swallow Artisan Gallery in Crozet, VA. She will also be teaching classes at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond in Richmond, VA this spring.
