Ms. Shortt works with paper, paint, and photography to archive communities and capture transitions. Her work is on display across the country and held in private collections. She is currently the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization where she shares her art with young creative minds.
Ms. Shortt’s current project, Girls Transition, looks at girls and young women as they go through many changes; some big some small. It is about the transitions that define them; the movement away from teddy bears and comfort, to loneliness; the slow growth into one’s skin.
