I’m Nedret, a full-time SOWA artist working in South End, Boston. I earned my BFA in Painting at Massachusetts College of Art and received my MFA in Visual Arts from Maine College of Art. My abstract oil paintings are process based; exploring color, texture, mark-making, and gestural drawing. I love the way oil paint drips, flows and makes terrific unexplainable combinations. Most of my paintings since 2015 have been about our environment, more specifically about seagrass habitats. My work is inspired by eelgrass restoration projects and my collaborations with local marine ecologist. I love being in the field with these wonderful scientists and helping bring awareness to the vital importance of this ecosystem.
