About

 

off and river-wild

brought east through the concrete

with paper & pen. 

 

Born and raised in New Hampshire, on a dirt road next to a river, I am currently in my second year away from the States.

Studying visual arts & design at Sabanci Istanbul, I recently finished an MA in Museum and Gallery Practice at University College London in Doha, Qatar.

I draw to document my surroundings and experiences, and collect used paper that I use to collage buildings, landscapes, figures. My writing tangles thought, analogy, and impulse reactions to languages I encounter. I consider the arts a crucial part of understanding and influencing a worldview, and want to show the versatility and viability of creative outputs in connecting people & their experiences.

Former projects include contributing and editing for Revels Magazine, an online pop culture publication formed and staffed by College of Wooster graduates, and Model Ingenuities, a critical reflection on my own experiences in the art world as a figure model.
