Sara Petroff S.C.A.
With degrees in both Visual Fine Arts and Interior Design, Sara has served as the curator and artistic director of Toronto's prominent Petroff Gallery for over 20 years, coached countless artists in their professional practice, juried art shows, taught art and sat on several boards and advisory committees in the arts, all the while dreaming that it should be her artwork up on those gallery walls!
In 2013 Petroff sold the gallery to establish Petroff Design, a thriving Interior Design, and Art Consulting practice, with the intent of striking a balance between her day job in front of the computer and her dream job in the studio, hands dirty, pushing the medium and creating something from nothing.
Sara has been an arts advocate and invited speaker at OCAD University, Sheridan College School of Craft & Design, the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, and the Art Gallery of Mississauga. She continues to serve on Advisory Committees at the McMichael Art Gallery for the Emerging Artists & Mentorship Program, Fleming College School of Art, and the Women’s Art Association of Canada.
Sara Petroff’s works have received awards for Best in Show and Peoples Choice at the Artist’s Network outdoor exhibitions. Through a vigorous jurying process, Sara has become an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and the Women’s Art Association of Canada.
