When I accepted a Fulbright Fellowship to study Anatolian textiles in Istanbul in 2013, I didn’t think my side hobby, a travel journal, would become my most passionate project. It was something I did for fun in my spare time, but I continued the practice in following years at artist­-in-­residence programs around the globe. After five years, my pictorial diary grew to 250 pages, documenting ten locations across Turkey, Morocco, France, England, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and the US. You can read more about my travel journal in Passion PassportTravel + Leisure, Mashable and the book, A World of Artist Journal Pages.
