off and river-wild

brought east through the concrete

with ink & paper 


Born and raised in New Hampshire, on a dirt road next to a river, I am studying visual arts & design at Sabanci University in Istanbul, having recently finished an MA in Museum and Gallery Practice at University College London in Doha, Qatar.

I consider the arts a crucial part of understanding and influencing a worldview, and want to show the versatility and viability of creative outputs as tools for research, understanding and connecting people & their experiences.

This website includes samples of my creative work, visual art, major projects, my blog - where I experiment with form & content both in writing and in combination with images. 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.

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.

For my design work visit Behance, more visual work and photos can be found on Instagram & tumblr. 

Please feel free to email me with any comments, inquiries, or collaborations.
