Isabel is a visual artist, aspiring cook, and retired musician based in North Adams, Massachusetts. Originally from Cabin John, Maryland, Isabel graduated High School from the Washington Waldorf School and went on to receive her B.A. from Bennington College in 2018 with concentrations in music, visual arts, and neuroscience. In her time at Bennington, Isabel strove to combine her interests in as many ways possible. Her studies in neuroscience and human psychology informed her creative projects by providing a clearer understanding of how a viewer or listener perceives and processes a piece, while her knowledge of the arts helped to refine her priorities in neuroscience by researching the effects of the arts on the developing brain.
Isabel’s work experience supplemented her academic studies while exposing her to the professional art world: she assisted New York City-based artists Jeanne Silverthorne and Daniel Wiener, developed her interest in bio art/science-inspired art at the SVA Bio Art Lab, explored the world of film and TV production with Knight Takes King Productions and Red Marble Media, and landed post-grad at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art where she worked in Visitor Services for 4 years.
Isabel now wears many hats at Ferrin Contemporary. In her free time, Isabel likes to rollerblade, do yoga, go thrifting and vintage shopping, and make visual and edible art in her kitchen and in-home studio space.
