Who is Keri?

Keri Sheheen was born and raised in the Forgotten Borough of Staten Island, NY. She went off to college in the teeny tiny town of New Paltz, NY and received a BFA in Printmaking with a minor in Film Studies. Fascinated by death, superstitions, unusual phenomenon, and optical illusions, the subjects of Keri’s work are often morbid yet humorous characters that live in a strange world fueled by childhood memories and personal anxieties. Her work has been featured in numerous galleries and festivals across the New York area, including the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art and The Governor’s Island Art Fair. She is no stranger to wearing different hats, having made work as a printmaker, book designer, sculptor, animator, and video editor. When she is not making prints, she is creating edible art in the form of specialty cakes at her family’s bakery. 

What's Parlor Trick Prints?

In 2018, Keri decided to "rebrand" herself as Parlor Trick Prints. This brand will focus on hand-printed works on paper, t-shirts, tote bags and wood, as well as enamel pins and other accessories. It will also be a further exploration of her thesis studies, which combined vintage forms of animation and illusions with printmaking. Stay tuned for more updates!
