I am a ceramic artist and photographer.

I studied computer programming at Bogazici University in Istanbul and Korean ceramics at Sungshin Women’s University in Seoul. My interest in photography turned into a passion as I started to study at the International Center of Photography in NYC.

I was born in Ankara, Turkey in 1967 and have lived in Istanbul, Tel Aviv, and Seoul. I currently live in Scarsdale, New York.
