She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

Guidelines for Publishing Content to Otis Web Spaces

Otis recognizes the educational value of electronic publishing. Creating content and posting it online is encouraged. Lively opinion and commentary are welcome. However, it is expected that content be professional and reflect well upon the Otis community.

The College encourages faculty, staff, and students in their publishing endeavors by providing open access to various software applications including, but not limited to blogs, electronic portfolios, and OSpace, and even Facebook pages. While Otis supports freedom of expression, please adhere to the following reasonable guidelines when publishing to Otis web spaces.

Consider Your Digital Identity and Privacy Issues

What you post on the Internet contributes to your on-line identity. Make sure you are presenting yourself appropriately and intelligently.

As you post and contribute content to any web space, remember it is a public forum and your comments and images will be open for others to see. What you post and the quality of your posting is a reflection of you and, in the case of College web spaces, a reflection of the Otis Community.

Think carefully about privacy issues and whether to disclose controversial material or embarrassing facts, true or untrue, about yourself or others, which are not of legitimate concern to the public.

Unacceptable Use
  • Potentially libelous posts or comments
  • Obscene, racist, sexist posts or comments
  • Personal attacks, insults, or threatening language
  • Plagiarized material or content that violates intellectual property rights
  • Private, personal information published without consent
  • Comments totally unrelated to the topic of the forum
  • Commercial promotions or spam
  • Hyperlinks to material that is not directly related to the discussion
  • Content that violates College policies or codes of conduct

If you have questions about appropriateness of content, ask your faculty, Chair, or the Director of Instructional Technology for advice. Otis College reserves the right to remove any pages, posts, or comments on College servers or applications without prior notification. The responsibility for providing backups for pages rests solely on the author.

Acceptable Use for Blogging

Bloggers are strongly encouraged to check facts, cite sources, present balanced views, acknowledge and correct errors, and check spelling and grammar before making a post live. While quotes from related websites and blogs are encouraged, bloggers are expected to cite their sources properly.

Please make clear that the views expressed in your blog are yours alone and do not represent the views of Otis College or groups within Otis College.

Comments on Portfolios and Blogs

Comments are open to all as long as the person identifies themselves. But comments may be moderated by an individual portfolio or blog creator/manager. Commentary, opinion, and reaction to posts are welcome. Comments should be relevant to the specific post they are attached to.
