THE ART OF

CHERYL SHENANDOAH

KAREN SHENANDOAH

Cheryl and Karen Shenandoah are Native American artists from Central New York specializing in beaded artwork.  They have been beading and creating Native art for as long as they can remember.  Their unique beaded dreamcatchers are favorites among collectors of their art, as well as their native american inspired  jewelry.  They are now including traditional raised beadwork to their repritore.

Cheryl and Karen are the grandchildren of late Tadodaho Leon Shenandoah.  Their Onondaga heritage has been the inspiration of all their artwork. They take pride in blending their Iroquois roots with a feminine touch, to create art that they feel truly represents the prominent role of women in their culture.

As children, they grew up in an artistic environment.  Looking on as their father designed intricate beaded loom work, often being the subject of his portrait sketches, has made a lasting, creative impact on their design process.

Their work is currently featured at the Oneida Sky Art Gallery in Verona, NY and Rockwell Museum of Western Art in Corning, NY.
