Lily Leman

Hi all! My name is Lily Leman. I am a junior majoring in Studio Art with a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies. My studio practice involves figurative imagery, portraiture, and stylized works. Growing up in Chicago as the eldest of 5 siblings, my work often draws from this experience. My work reflects experiences related to familial relationships, gender binaries, birth order, a Christian upbringing, and plenty of material exploration. I enjoy all things 2D visual art, but I consider drawing to be my comfort and my passion. I am beyond excited to work with Opus this semester as your Co-Editor. Yay Opus!

Prose Editor

Claire Furjanic

Hey! My name is Claire Furjanic, and I am a senior double majoring in Creative Writing and Psychology. I enjoy writing as a form of creative expression and reflection. Reading and writing creative work has contributed to my growth as a writer and as a person, so I am more than excited to be a part of the OPUS staff this semester. Outside of reading and writing, I love traveling, coffee, and live music. I am excited to learn and celebrate with fellow creatives through the OPUS community!

Abi Rhee

Hi! I’m Abi Rhee, and I’m a sophomore double majoring in English and Communications with a leadership minor! I am from the greater Greater Rapids area of west Michigan, and I am beyond grateful to be a Phelps Scholar and a returning Art Editor with Opus! I have a personal vendetta against poor documentation and poems with unnecessary capitalized lines. If you ever hear Mac Miller blaring through the walls, of Wyckoff Hall, it’s probably me so feel free to come jam out with me and my vinyls! 🙂
