Svalbard 2013

Svalbard 2013

Kate Sheridan is an artist-naturalist working in a range of media from printmaking, sculpture, pen and ink, painting, to taxidermy. Animals and their anatomy has always been her primary focus as she explores the boundaries between life and death, decay and growth, humanity's impact and nature's response, while attempting to grasp the virulent beauty of the wild and unknown. She also works extensively in the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard where she helps to organize the collection.


She was selected as a voyager for the Charles W. Morgan’s 38th Voyage through Mystic Seaport, attended the 2013 Arctic Circle residency in Svalbard, received the 2011 Excellence in 3D Fine Art from Lesley University College of Art and Design, and has shown work around Massachusetts and internationally. She received her BFA in Illustration and Fine Art from Lesley University College of Art and Design.
