Eliza Whalen is a multimedia artist from Albany, New York currently studying in Boston, Massachusetts. Her work explores the ideas of finding comfort in one’s identity, embracing femininity, and the bittersweetness of growth.


She is currently enrolled in the dual degree BA/BFA program at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, studying history and studio art. Her academic studies focus on the history of Europe and Russia, while her artistic pursuits concentrate primarily on ink illustration, painting, and cyanotype printmaking. During the Spring of 2023, she spent several months in Paris studying history and art history through Tufts and at the Université Paris Cité.


In addition to her pursuits at Tufts and the SMFA, Eliza is passionate about live music, talking about books, drinking peach tea, playing guitar, and rock climbing.
