I was born in Istanbul where Asia meets Europe and where I developed my interest in the rich tradition of decorative art and embellishment. As a trained biologist I also became intimately
acquainted with exotic plant botany.
While painting and drawing from an early age, it was only since 2007 that I began to merge the visual ideas in my mind, the myriad species of organisms and organic structures, with those of
quantum physics, and in general a place where the real and fantasy mix, with my imagination as their host.
