Sheridan Prints is run by printmaker Sarah Sheridan. Sarah makes her prints by hand at home using only a few tools.
Sarah first learned printmaking in a high school art class. She tried it again a few years ago and when she was having health problems and found printmaking a way to focus. Since then, printmaking has become one of the great loves in her life.
Sheridan Prints is run solely by Sarah. She makes her prints by hand at home using only a few tools such as her carving blades and ink brayer.
An ongoing theme in her work are her personal experiences with chronic illness. She uses her experiences in her work to highlight the struggle and dreams of those living with invisible physical & mental illnesses that often limit people to their homes.
As well, she draws on her struggle with family disconnection which pushes her to deepen her identity through her own family history research to learn more about her own roots and ancestors stories’ as well as her own relationship building outside of bloodlines to sustain herself in community.
