If I don’t have a lot of time but just want to get creative, I will go ahead and carve a small stamp! The outcome is always really satisfying and pleasing. You can find examples of these on my instagram page.
I especially love the process of carving linoleum. I tend to start off by either doodling or drawing my idea as a sketch in my sketchbook and sometimes I will draw my idea directly on to the linoleum.
As I work full time, I get creative whenever I find the opportunity. It doesn’t take a lot to get creative. I love seeing the final results, even the little imperfections!
I am of Turkish and English background. At an early age, I always knew that I wanted to have art in my life. To fulfill this dream, I moved to the UK to study at Cambridge school of Art (ARU) where I studied BA (Hons) Fine Art printmaking.
After graduation I continued working as an Art Technician at the university where I had the opportunity to take part in a lot of exhibitions and also had the opportunity to produce my own artwork while exploring different artists work and also had the opportunity to try a lot of different techniques as I had access to limitless print studios.
Currently, I live in Barcelona with my husband and two cats. All of my prints are hand printed by in my living room by using a barren or by using a wooden spoon.
I particularly like using block printing as a medium because I find it very therapeutic but at the same time, I sometimes like using screen printing and collagraphs too. I mostly use block printing as my main medium because I like the mystery of not knowing how a print may look, once printed.
I am interested in things that have a meaning for me or have some form of importance in the two cultures I hold. My prints are mostly of symbols, talismans, female figures and most of all cats as I am a cat lover.
