Duffy Sheridan

Duffy Sheridan has been painting since he was a child. His father, also an artist, encouraged him to paint anything and everything. He has traveled the world and has dedicated his work to the discovery and expression of beauty as he sees it.

Although Sheridan was a working artist as a young man, he did not begin to truly hone his skills until he and his family moved abroad. For 12 years, living on Islands in the South Atlantic and South Pacific, he worked relentlessly developing a style of painting which would allow him the freedom to explore visually those subjects which are of interest to him. During those years he realized that for him painting in a realistic manner forces one to be perceptive and that perception guides one toward appreciation.

Since returning to the United States in 1991, his work has received international acclaim and he has been designated a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center. For over 40 years, the teachings of the Baha’i Faith have been the primary influence on Sheridan’s life and work and have guided his search for that balance of craftsmanship and artistic expression which he believes has the potential to elevate, in some small way, the human condition.

Sheridan feels that he is continually in the process of learning to appreciate the richness of the world around him and has come to believe that the purpose of his work is “to magnify the dignity and the inspiring qualities of the human spirit.”

“My years of practice and observation have led me to acknowledge that all I perceive to be wonderful about art can be expressed through the human form and it is my purpose to explore those subtle elements of human expression that reveal to us all the tokens of the Divine.”

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF TRADITIONAL ARTISTS was formed to showcase the talents of the many professional fine artists of today, irrespective of gender, through the promotion of their art in an annual event sponsored by a National Art Museum.
