Sierra Sigmone

Bio:

                                     

Sierra Sigmone was born in Cheverly, MD.  She is a recent graduate of the University of Maryland, and received  a BA in Architecture, a BA in Studio Art Architecture, a Minor in Real Estate Development and a Minor in Sustainability Studies.  

 

Sierra traveled to Italy, in the summer of 2019 to study abroad.  The program was composed of two architecture courses: ARCH 478R (Drawing II: The Eye, The Mind, The Hand, and The Drawn Image) and ARCH 478V (The Building and The City).  ARCH 478R focused on descriptive, atmospheric, and analytical drawings through orthographic, axonometric, and perspective diagrams, using graphite, charcoal and watercolor.  ARCH478V focused on observation, documentation, and analysis, through orthographic, axonometric, and diagramming.  Both of these courses were conducted in situ, directly in the buildings, gardens, and piazzas. 

 

This website showcases her art work that is for sale from 2011-to the present.

Sierra took art classes at the MTC Art Studios, taught by Mrs. Mavis Turner, where she helped cultivate Sierra’s art and made her the artist she is today.

 

In addition to the fine arts, Sierra enjoys photography, baking, and working with children. She has had a plethora of experience in the professional art field, including: teaching art to kids through summer camp and AmeriCorp, helping to design and being the youngest of a three-person art team to create a mural on Route 1 for the Paint Branch Community,  being mentored by international fashion designer KAZ, being an assistant to internal artist Maryanne Pollock, and being an intern for See In Colors.  Most recently, Sierra developed and installed two 23' x 83' murals and is currently working with Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission to create and teach S.T.E.A.M. programs to children.
