I’m an Architect, and a Professional in Turkish Fine Arts….

I always fall in love with color, harmony, composition,
I love details that have more details…..
That’s why I mostly do my art ; Turkish Fine Art of Illumination, Miniatures, Turkish Wood Illumination and so on…

More about me…
Originally I’m an American.
When I was 17, we came to Istanbul / Turkiye for my fathers job. The whole family fell in love with the culture, people, history, the food…….. We never went back.
If you live in Istanbul, it’s impossible to get bored. It’s a great place. Here’s why I love history, and became an Architect and now I’m getting masters about Restoration and Conservation.
