Sheridan Kennedy is a Queensland born, Sydney-based jeweller whose practice includes public art, product design, private commissions, collaboration with fashion designers, and one-off artworks.
She received her PhD in creative arts from the University of Sydney (Sydney College of the Arts) in 2010. Her thesis addressed the relationship between jewellery and wearer, across cultures and throughout history, and considered the question of how we might re-imagine and thus re-value the social role of the object.
Prior to undertaking her PhD, she spent more than a decade creating fashion retail ranges and exhibiting her artwork in Australia, China, Japan, the UK, Italy and USA.
Her work is represented in the collections of the Powerhouse Museum, Queensland Art Gallery, The Art Galleries of Western Australia and South Australia, and the National Gallery of Australia, and she has undertaken artist-in-residencies in UK, Spain and USA.
