Intro
I was born in Izmir in 1983. After completing my undergraduate education in Public Administration at Dokuz Eylül University Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, I moved to Istanbul in 2005. I took technical courses at the Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio in 2015 and conceptual courses at the same studio until 2019.

Statement

It is an invaluable source of inspiration for me that every single moment of our lives and all that we come across is open to interpretation and to re-creation in different forms. As for contemporary jewellery, it is an area where I have the freedom of working regarding materials, subjects, techniques and interpretation. In contemporary jewellery, it is often the first requisite to separate feelings from thought and one must ask questions and seek what lies beyond. And for me, the most meaningful implication of producing in this area is that any outcome is valuable as it has a soul, regardless of the material value of the material used.
From this point of view, my tendency to produce works that would reveal my own point of view against the current perceptions of the concepts: value and valuable which are always open to debate turns this creation process into a stance for me.



Deep Inside of Me, 2019
"Deep inside of me" is a collection inspired by patterns and poems of Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu, the famous Turkish painter and poet.
My ultimate desire for this collection is to say something beyond our body: the physical form of existence, something about our soul and our spiritual scars caused by various reasons. For this desire, “Deep Inside of Me” is a celebration of the losses of each one of us and the gap remained somewhere inside us after such losses and our unspoken words for them. It is my way of celebration and respect.



Despite, 2017
“To keep going despite all the unexpected, compelling and hurting struggles, storms of life, to choose to keep going… and to believe in hope and its glittering existence…”
“Despite” is a projection of the sentences leaked into my soul through the book called “The Dispossessed”* during the time when I was struggling to find a way out despite everything.
My self-realization journey has mediated the creation by the soil despite everything, and the hope has
created the crack it will spring out from, again by itself. 
*The Dispossessed, Ursula K. LeGuin, 1974
