I was born in Gelibolu, Turkey in 1985. I studied law between 2003-2007 at Anadolu University Faculty of Law but it wasn’t until my graduation and my completion as an intern lawyer that I realized my talents and passion laid elsewhere. In 2008, I began my art practice at the Dokuz Eylul University School of Fine Arts. I earned my BFA in 2013 and was soon thereafter granted a Fulbright Scholarship for the MFA Program at Syracuse University. As a result of this process, I earned my Master of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University Visual and Performing Arts in 2016. Since then, I have been living and working in Istanbul.
