In 2013 I traveled to Istanbul for one year as a Fulbright fellow and have been on the move ever since, attending art residencies and traveling independently in Turkey, Morocco, France, Finland and the United States. Along the way I illustrate my travels in a Moleskine journal with acrylic ink. Each page is a painting of a landscape or memory embellished with handwritten poetry. Artwork explores broader themes of memory, nostalgia, and the blending of one's inner world with the external world. Below is a selection from 120 pages and growing.
Pages have been featured by AirBnb, Travel + Leisure, Mashable, Huffington Post Greece, The Wall Street Journal, and A World of Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol, published in 2015.
