Daphne Cuadrado Andino
Daphne Cuadrado Andino is a returning Govie from the class of 2007, joining the Office of Outreach as the Visual Arts Teaching Artist. Originally born in Puerto Rico, Daphne grew up in Taylors, SC. Her experience includes teaching seven years at the collegiate level with Coastal Carolina University and the University of Idaho. Daphne has also collaborated with the Governor School’s Outreach Program as a Teaching Artist in Cheraw, SC, and Mullins, SC.
As a multi-media studio artist, her work focuses on the issues of overfishing. Through the use of interdisciplinary practices, she asks her audience how they can become more aware consumers by creating an evolving interactive experience where the passive viewer becomes an active participant. Daphne also enjoys working in ceramics and woodworking.
Besides being in the studio, she enjoys fresh and saltwater fishing, kayaking, biking, gardening, and hanging out with her cat Luna. In the past few years, one of her favorite side jobs was working as a guide at an adventure ropes course park in Myrtle Beach, SC. There Daphne enjoyed zip-lining and completing levels one and two of the obstacle course (She’s too chicken to go on level three).
