Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Yvonne Shortt

I work with paper, paint, and photography to archive communities and capture transitions. My work is on display across the country and held in private collections. I am currently the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization where I share my art with creative minds and activists engaged in social change.

My 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.
