About Me


#occuppyturkey/ R E S I S T TURKEY


Its hard to describe myself about personal ways. I think this is something which has to be asked to my friends. so now Im going to "bla bla" something.

I have been living in Eskisehir/ Turkey for 8 years. I studied and worked there. Im graduated from Art Education. But I was more interested in Painting so, decided to study Painting at Fine Arts department for my Master degree. Than I applied for PhD and during my PhD, I became to a lecturer for some drawing courses in the same university that I studied.

But suddenly I left everything and moved to Denmark. I was volunteering in a school for 1,5 years.

Finally I moved back to Turkey. Now I am trying to survive in İstanbul!

p.s1; you can check some of my works here, https://www.behance.net/

p.s.2; for my hosts, I really have strong phobia about snakes..so if its not written on your profile that you feed/have it, and if I want to surf in your couch, just let me know about it! thank you


well, if I woulndt study painting, I would like to study theatre for sure!
thats why I acted in a theatre club. 2 years as a performer and one year worked in the backstage. I love theatre! One of my regrets is about not becaming to an actress

I like cinema as well..well mostly watching(except few funny short movies that me and my friends made)

Im not very good about cooking but I like it. well, honestly I like eating more :)

listening music is part of my life - thats also might sounds like an survey answer:) but it is- I like singing also. I have a big(not very big) casestte archive.

I like old stuff. probably tahts why fleas markets and some old boxes are really attractive to me.

besides, I like
making "own" thing and making my own sketchbooks,
vacuum cleaners' click sound when it took the dust
and some other things.

well..not very interesting life!
