Sierra Sanchez (b. 1994) is an American artist, musician and filmmaker based in Boston, Massachusetts. Their work is influenced by their constant rotation between mediums in their practice.  Refusing to choose just one discipline, Sierra's pursuit of filmmaking, music production, and painting elevates an interconnected and multifaceted dialogue about identity to occur. Their work is influenced by surrealism, horror, dance music, fashion, non-binary/transgender expression and their mixed, Asian-American heritage.

Sierra has been a guest critic at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Brown University, and held an artist talk at Brookhaven College, Dallas, Texas. They have exhibited in galleries across Rhode Island, including Skye Gallery, Providence Art Club, Coastal Contemporary, RISD, and Public.

From 2014 to 2016, they trained in art and design at Brookhaven College, Dallas, Texas.
