i am a turkish-dutch artist living in bergen op zoom, the netherlands.

i was born in 1978 in ankara, capital of turkey. having made the mistake of studying engineering initially, i quickly corrected it and moved to rochester ny, where i received my fine arts degree.

i paint mostly with acrylics and oils, although watercolors and inks are tools i prefer from time to time. besides painting and yearly exhibitions, i love making illustrations, mainly for children's books.

digital media has offered several possibilities for me in the recent years. i enjoy character creation and making digital illustrations along with graphic design.

occasionally and on demand i teach and offer workshops in my studio.

thanks for stopping by!
