Sheridan is a mother, a horse back riding instructor and an artist. For her, art is a passion she dove back into after having her twins. It has always been important in her life, but after becoming a mom, art became her therapy. Making art is a way to maintain who she is regardless of what roles she takes on at each stage of her life. Currently, Sheridan is a resident at Hardy & Nance Studios in the Houston warehouse district.
“My work has always represented a contrast between right and left brain which is very much a personal struggle. I am incredibly analytical and logical in my thinking and simultaneously an imaginative empath. In school I was in both a digital art class and anatomy and physiology in the same semester. I found myself incorporating the structures and systems I was studying into my art projects. The structures and how perfectly they functioned was fascinating and beautiful. Anatomical subjects have
been a part of my work since that semester.
As I have worked to get out of my comfort zone, I have found new ways to represent this contrast. As of late, subjects in geometric patterns with
color and movement and gemstones have moved to the forefront of my work. I want my art to speak to both sides of the brain. I work primarily in acrylic but also do charcoal portraiture, mixed media and beadwork."
