I can't recall a time in my life where I didn't love to draw.  From the time I could hold a pencil, I felt a natural affinity to transpose my experiences into pieces of art.  In addition to an early interest in drawing, spending time in the Australian bush and rainforest featured heavily in my childhood experiences. This led to a great respect and love for Australia’s native flora and fauna and so I spent time in my early twenties as a volunteer wildlife carer.

I think it is due to the culmination of these experiences that wildlife is my favourite subject to paint. 


Growing up in an artistic family, with my mother and father both being recognised nationally and globally for their calligraphy, Turkish watercolour marbling and bookbinding, my visual arts education started from a young age. I have attended Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, studying Graphic Design and then completed a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and Bachelor of Education (Secondary). 


As a mother of two young children my art pursuits had to take a back seat. However, in recent years I have had the time to focus on my art again. I have recently joined BACCI ( and intend on spending more time focusing on my art. I am now, primarily, a commission-based artist, accepting commissions to create artworks including paper-sculpture, portraiture and landscapes. My works are in private collections throughout Australia and overseas.
