Currently, she works at her studio and practices art as a member of Yaygara Contemporary Art Initiative.

Statement

For me contemporary jewelry is the way to express my self, more than an adornment and not seperated from contemporary art.
I create by taking inspiration from the cultural texture and the geography I live in. The diversities and the contrasts of this geography are the colors of my universe & works. I experience the materials and production techniques by blending the contrasts such as the east and the west, the local and the global, the traditional and the modern, the geometric and the organic…



Mein Lieber Dictator Series is about terms such as authority, auto-censorship, obedience, hierarchy etc.
There is an increasing pressure and an authoritarian tendency globally. Such problems became the starting point of the Mein Lieber Dictator Series and the jewelry came into play as a means of expression.
