Chris Sheridan is a contemporary realist whose paintings search out the stories and myths lingering within the splendor and shadows of nature. His work originally sought to better understand the human condition, through symbol laden renderings of the human figure inspired by folklore, mythology and religion. In 2017, his focus abruptly changed as he wandered deeper into storytelling, moving beyond the human form, to its very inspiration in the landscape.

Before embarking on this nearly 25-year journey, Chris earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in visual arts. He has served as an adjunct professor of art and design. Art residencies and extensive travel throughout Europe and South America have allowed him to immerse himself ever-deeper, into the wonders of nature and rich story. After calling numerous areas of the US home, Chris has settled in the Pacific Northwest in Washington State.  You can currently see his work at the Seattle Art Museum Gallery.
