Growing up on Florida’s west coast, Wright Harvey first fell in love with the visual arts painting orangy sunsets and drawing endless palm trees. While studying studio art at the University of Virginia, the practice of printmaking opened his eyes to the infinite array of artistic techniques and processes. It wasn’t until meeting Calvine, his future wife, who is now a specialist in Sotheby’s Old Masters department, that he decided to move to New York to see and absorb as much art as he could (and food and beer, but that’s another bio).
Wright spent his first decade in New York building a career in corporate strategy at J.P. Morgan, developing his love for business and entrepreneurship. In the evenings, he would devote time to events with the Morgan Library Young Fellows, MoMA Junior Associates, The Met Apollo Circle, or would just head home to do some sketching or watercoloring. Through Sugarlift, Wright loves to share his passion for the visual arts with fellow artists and with a whole new collecting audience.
