|Sabra Skutt-Morman is an artist and entrepreneur. Raised in Lafayette Park in Detroit, she attended Friends School in Detroit and the University Liggett School. After graduating from University of Dayton, she paired-up with Catherine Watson and started working on curating and writing an arts and culture blog, The Dissertation. They developed a mixed media portfolio of artwork exhibited at the 2014 Artprize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her experiences in Detroit influence her socially aware, yet paradoxical materials. Her artwork has a unique perspective that evokes an emotional reaction through the use of color and content.
Sabra taught a creative-based entrepreneurship program at select Detroit Public Schools. She enjoys mentoring and has been consistently dedicated to expanding the program. Her future goals are to creatively consult artists, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing businesses. Sabra utilizes the skills she gained at College for Creative Studies to develop branding design ideas in Photoshop and Illustrator. She feels socially responsible to discover innovative techniques to provide assistance and to share with others.
