Hey There!
I am a Turkish children's book and editorial illustrator who is recently based in Namur, Belgium. I adore nostalgic feelings, vibrant memories, and playful moments. I find the most joy in illustration in the tiny details that we can connect throughout our memories.

 

I have been drawing since I was 3, and from that moment I didn't stop using drawing as a sort of relaxation or play. I studied drawing in high school, and later on, I found myself in the Photography department in Turkey's one of the most prestigious Fine Arts Universities; YTU. In the middle of my studies, I decided to run away with a circus, and have been a full-time circus performer ever since, till COVID-19 hits.

   Covid bringing many chances in an artist's life; it brought me back to my idea of illustrating children's books and having 2 professionals for the rest of my life. Luckily, I already illustrated a published book years before this incident; I knew where to start; and here I am today as a published illustrator. While I was illustrating with traditional mediums for a while, now I passed to digital mediums, and I enjoy it so very much.
Nowadays, I work as a freelance illustrator; tho I am in discussions with different agencies for presentation.
