Based in United Kingdom
I was born in Turkey and moved to UK many years ago and received a Fashion BA (Hons) degree from the University for the Creative Arts. While I enjoyed working as a designer both in Turkey and UK, I felt it wasn't really fulfilling my passion for creation. I decided to learn oil painting while I was a freelance designer and it didn’t take much time that I found myself falling in love with art more than ever!…
I strongly influenced by fashion, photography and people. My work is about connections that human beings make or don’t make through language, expression, emotions, and desires. Exploring how we communicate, accept, or reject these connections to form relationships is a theme throughout my work….I focus on human figure, as it is often the vehicle which relays the connection. Portraits are a predominant part of my work as I am fascinated and challenged by mostly subtle expression on the faces or body language.
My work has seen in Tokyo, New York and Barcelona in Digital Art Showcases and Art Fairs in UK. I was a selected artist for Charity Art Auction - Doctors Without Borders at the Blenheim Palace in Oxford, UK in 2015……..” As Seen In British Vogue” - 2016 February Edition & June - Special Centenary Issue…..
