Sheridan & Nicole have been best friends since they were 14 years old.
They both have a shared love for art and so they created an instagram (@1.800.artsluts) that is a collective of the multi-media art that they create.
What would be your message to young girls around the globe?
Nicole: Don’t be afraid to take up space. Show up for yourself, know what you’re worth, and don’t accept anything less. GRL PWR!!!
Sheridan: Know who you are & love who you are. Never let anyone make you feel like you can’t do what you want to do.
What social / political issues are the most important to you?
Nicole: Gender equality. Racial equality. LGBTQ equality. The world would be a lot better place if we could all show a little more empathy towards each other.
Sheridan: TRUE equality for women, LGBTQ & PoC.
What keeps you sane in this insane world?
Nicole: Staying active, and focusing on things I love like art, music, friends & family. Also just knowing how to laugh things off and have fun, and not take everything so seriously.
Sheridan: Making art and being with friends/family.
What do you see as your biggest challenge?
Nicole: Self-doubt. But art has really helped me to learn how to just trust myself and get out of my comfort zone.
Sheridan: Juggling a full-time job while trying to stay creative.
What makes you feel at home?
Nicole: Friends, family, and my dog!
Sheridan: My boyfriend and doggy 🙂
