OUTSHINE fear

Updated: Aug 29

How does one encourage and motivate others when opportunity appears to be limited?

Answer: LOVE MORE for every hate.


OUTSHINE fear is a series of work that combines alternative photographic methods + relief printmaking.


I am a parent and an educator living and working in NYC. On March 22, 2020, my twin 17 years old daughters were informed that they would not be returning to their high school, three months shy of their graduation. They were attending a NYC performance & art high school and were in the visual arts program. Art is social, so when the school began teaching remotely many of the students did not show up to the online classes. Without the use of the school’s studio space, art supplies, and direct guidance from teachers and their peers, many students found it difficult to work on their own. Some students became despondent and didn’t complete their work.
