Sarah Grace Cheek is an artist and woodworker based in Earlysville, VA.
She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts 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 enjoying venturing into the realms of more representational art by exploring relief carvings. Sarah Grace uses hand carving and power carving techniques to create most of her work. She finds inspiration in bones, rocks, bark, scavenged and salvaged materials and antique textiles including late 19th to early 20th century quilts.
Every handmade piece at Alma’s is a story of its craft.
