Keri Sheheen is an artist born and raised in Staten Island, NY.

Primarily her focus is illustration and printmaking, drawing inspiration from folklore, macabre characters, local history and the strange. She also has a growing body of work dedicated to vintage forms of animation and motion in combination with printmaking and optical illusions.

Keri received a BFA in Printmaking from SUNY New Paltz in 2013. She has exhibited work in galleries and shows throughout the tri-state area, including the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, The Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, Staten Island’s Artspace and The Alice Austen House Museum. In 2018, Keri partnered with the Coney Island Mermaid Parade to design that year’s official parade t-shirt, featuring her skeleton mermaid design. She also frequents local art fairs with her traveling print company and art brand, Parlor Trick Prints LLC, specializing in DTG prints on wood, t-shirts and other merchandise, as well as laser cut goods, from her home studio. 

She currently works from her Victorian Staten Island apartment with her partner, Carl, and 2 cats, Charlie and Evelyn Bean.
