Sterling Crawford (b. 1997) is a self-taught artist born and raised in Greenville, SC. She graduated from the College of Charleston with a BS in Finance in 2019. After three years of working in accounting and growing her art experience and passion for art through commissioned dog portraits and landscape paintings, she embarked on a new journey as a full-time artist in late 2022. 

Sterling is a contemporary realistic painter, focusing on evoking a narrative in each of her original works. Sterling is inspired by art's ability to open people's eyes to a specific feeling or subject matter, leaving them to experience the world a little differently than before. She currently resides between Greenville and her family's farm in Laurens, South Carolina. Much of her inspiration comes from the landscape and lifestyle on the farm.
