About Me

Artist Statement

Emotional dancing and the rythym of geometry guide my tools for moving paint and ink. Form and meaning find me. I listen. I see. Intimate journeys explore me. 


Ahu’s painting career started later in life. She exhibited in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2018, and in the summer of 2022, she had a duo show with Ben Ali at Dar Souiri in Essaouira, Morocco. She has private collectors in Sweden, France, Morocco, and the USA. 

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Ahu lived and worked in New York City for 12 years after graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NYC. Her starring role in the cult classic movie, "Basket Case" was inducted into MOMA’s film library in 2017.

Ahu enjoys a lifelong focus in the arts. Her large-scale sculptures grace homes and gardens of private collectors in the USA. Her dance performance art pieces and music collectives toured the globe.

From 2014 to 2020, Ahu lived in Sweden where she published a poetry collection titled, “Take It In”, inspired by a year of living in Morocco. Her second collection of poetry titled, “abstract romance,’ was published in May 2022. (both collections can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble Books, and Ingram).
