YOU AND ME
I was born in Ankara where is the capital city of Turkey and I grew up in Çorum. I have a Bachelor Degree from Arts and Crafts Education Department, Gazi University Faculty of Education and a Master Degree from Department of Social Sciences at the same university. I have completed my PhD degree at Graduate School of Educational Sciences at Anadolu University, Turkey.
I was raised in a family who appreciates art and artist when I was a child. At that time, when someone gave paints and colored pencils to me I was happier than someone gave me a chocolate.I am an associated professor at Painting Department of Faculty of Fine Arts at Dumlupinar University, Turkey.I prefer to work with acrylic paints and mixed technics beacuse I use large canvases like 150×300 cm and quick drying time helps me to produce more paintings in a short time.
I work with dry pastels and tehcnic of mixed media on small paper surfaces because of easy carrying and working ability at anywhere.I get inspired by my feelings and emotions. I tried to utter invisible feelings inside humans insted of visible faces. I believe that love is a special emotion and a gift from god. In my paintings, I try to utter love in a simple and clearly way with help of body language.Many people generally feel passion, longing, compassion, romanticism and all about love in my paintings and also I feel so.I use only black, white, brown, beige and red colours in my paintings. These colours are my favorite colours in my daily life usage also such as my dresses and furniture.
