I've been in the arts all my life… with some detours. I started my journey as an actress and director for the State Theatre of Turkey. After becoming the first single person there to ever adopt, I returned to the US knowing I had more than myself to take care of so I carved a career in HR. It took some events in life, posing as tragedies, to find my way back into the arts.
ranges from acrylic paintings and jewelry to three-dimensional works through my
miniatures. In miniatures, I create scenes capturing a mood, usually
jovial or romantic.
My paintings focus on color and contrast. I absolutely love
color and find joy in trying to control the uncontrollable in the techniques I use! In my paintings, many see distinct shapes, people, animals, scenes of the ocean and other aspects of our universe. This is probably the main reason why I gravitate toward the abstract. It is wondrous to me that the same piece can create such different experiences.
My jewelry comes directly from my paintings; as the paint drips from the canvas, I capture them into jewelry and seal them with resin. I have also experimented with alcohol inks, a wonderful medium. In either case, you will not find a single piece of jewelry that is the same!
You will see in the Prints section, I have some works in pen & ink. Most of those are my mothers. She was an amazing artist and since I lost her, after a brave struggle with cancer, I thought this would be a great way to honor her life and influence on me. Proceeds from her prints go to one of the many charities she supported.
Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share what I see in our world.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with
Color. Aesthetics. The side of the world that is always beautiful.
I use primarily acrylics to create. Acrylic pouring has been a focus of mine but have been delving into some embellishments of these pours which you can see the process on the work named SeaScapes. I'm also doing some experiments using alcohol inks - stay tuned :)
From the Theatre to Human Resources and back to the arts through painting and creating miniature worlds free of negativity... to me there are highlights in every stage of my career/s.
