Born 1983, Ankara, Turkey. I originally graduated in Environmental Engineering, but instead of this I chose this entirely different path for my life and have been working full time as a botanical artist for over 10 years. I am very glad I made this decision, though as the child of a botanist father and growing up surrounded by wild nature made my decision easy.

Transylvania Florilegium

I am happy to say that, I was one of eight artists selected worldwide, to paint wild flowers growing in the meadows of Transylvania in June 2015. I travelled with highly skilled artist from all around the world including Japan, New Zeland, Ireland and England, to central Romania to prepare illustrations that may be selected for inclusion in Transylvania Florilegium. This project is presently being created under the umbrella of the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, a charitable organization of the Prince of Wales, to record in a permanent way the flora of Transylvania.

Each artist is aimed to paint three plants, recording as much as information in two weeks, if possible even complete them during the trip. So I have worked on 3 amazing species which are Viburnum vincetoxicum, Galium glaucoma and Cirsium rivale. We were looked after well during this time and stayed in the properties of Prince Charles located in lovely Saxon villages.
