MOMENTS OF FREEDOM
Where she started
SHEVARÉ- The ARTIST
Shevaré is a multifaceted artist and educator who explores the overlap of visual art and poetry. Her outlets of artistic expression are 3D mixed media collage paired with poetic dialogue. She believes that poetic story telling paired with animated presentations is a catalyst to spark conversation, share history, and increase creative approaches to language arts.
Ever since childhood Shevare’s parents would encourage her to express her creativity. This led her to study Fashion Design at Philadelphia University. Being quite imaginative she began to make wearable art and large hair pieces for hair shows.
Her dedication to remain creative has led to many opportunities:
International Fashion Weeks
Present and exhibit at Museums- St. Louis Art Museum and The Charles Wright Museum
Travel and work backstage at top hair shows nationwide
Meet and connect with fashion students from around the country
Teach fashion design and marketing at the collegiate level
She is a true example of taking an entrepreneurial approach to, “Love what you do, do what you love.”

The year is 2195, and A LOT has changed. After major political, economic, and social turmoil, the United States is a disaster. The media is completely controlled and censored by the government. The history of the oppressed, and people of color has been dismantled, edited, and in most cases totally erased. All books and physical publications are forbidden and have been destroyed.
All is not completely lost. There is a glimmer of hope!
