I was born in 1974 in Eskisehir and have a bachelor’s degree from the Uludag University fine arts department. After graduation, I worked as an art teacher for 8 years, then moved to the US. During that time I took traditional oil painting classes, joined many workshops and open studios at prestigious institutions such as The University of Washington and Gage Academy of Art, and I’ve worked with inspiring artists such as Susanne Brooker. I have 3 kids who gave me a lot of joy and I have a new direction in my art. I would like to work on illustration projects for kids.
