Artist Statement

Eyes are a mirror into a woman’s soul. Her entire life can be seen through them; love, happiness, sadness, and pain.




I have always painted the images engraved in my memories since my childhood.


My first paintings were oil based portraits. Then I worked with watercolour, acrylics and mixed media. My style also evolved from representational art to abstract art. I work with realistic objects, but I present them from a surrealist perspective.


In the last few years, I added ceramics to my portfolio. I started with traditional pots and plates, and evolved towards tile making and wall murals.


Colour and texture characterize my artwork. I use complementary colours and color shades. The earth tones, oranges, and blues are usually more dominant because I feel that they harmonize better with my abstract subjects.


Because of my origins, I tend to use objects from the Anatolian decorative tradition. That is why objects such as tulips, birds and fish are dominant features in my work. I create abstract compositions by combining modern art philosophy with thousand year old figures.


I hold an Art Diploma from Ottawa School of Art. I have participated in several solo and group exhibitions. A number of my paintings are in private collections, in Canada and abroad. Some of my paintings can also be seen in the Ottawa School of Art boutique, ByWard Campus.
