She has also shown work at 337 Project Space, Light Gallery + Studio, Paint Creek Center for the Arts, Lemonade Stand Gallery, and Kresge Art Museum. She was a participant in ArtPrize 2015 as part of Processing Fiber at 250 Monroe which was placed on the Juror Shortlist for Outstanding Venue by Steven Matijcio, Cincinnati-based Curator at the Contemporary Arts Center. Sierra graduated from Michigan State University in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree of fine art, with a focus on graphic design and printmaking. She lives and works in a 100+ year-old home in the Eastown neighborhood of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
