SHERIDAN MACKNIGHT

Lakota / White Earth Chippewa

 

Known for her painted imagery on rawhide jewelry, Sheridan studied art at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.  She regularly displays her jewelry at notable fine art shows and institutions, and divides her time between California and Santa Fe, New Mexico.  

 

“As a painter, I have been inspired by the early 20th century Native American artists, characterized by flattened compositions, bold lines, and narrative style.  This movement is reflected in my own jewelry, which captures the line, color, and imagery of the early first Native masters.”
