offspring project, 2005

The Offspring Project is a series of photographs of artists’ children with their parents’ creative work. I grew up as the daughter of a mother painter/installation-artist and father art-historian. I was inspired to begin this project during a meditation retreat during which I experienced a moment of tremendous gratitude for having parents as artists.

I have photographed about 20 different artists’ children and continue to photograph more for this project throughout the states, Europe, and Korea, including Sookyung Lee, Robert Yarber, Julie Heffernan, and Elena Sisto to name a few. The locations where I shoot can include the artists’ studios or homes or museums/galleries where they are exhibiting.
