I was born in Istanbul and I moved to Canada in 2008. I have been painting since I was very little. My mom is also an artist so we used to work together all my childhood.

I always liked realism in paintings and every medium I use. My works looked realistic, or at least I aimed for it. I  had 2 dreams when I was a kid, one to be an astronomer and the other one to be an archaeologist. As most of the kids, I was also in love with space too. So I decided to study astronomy.

While studying at the university I was so sure that it wasn’t something for me to do my entire life. Astronomy is really amazing but I was sure that it won’t be my job. I loved astronomy but had no passion for it. While at school my father wanted me to do what he does for a living at that time, which was being an insurance broker. He knew some people and made me work during the summer times in such big insurance companies.That life is not for me, nothing about that life was for me.

So I remember writing a letter to my father that I will not be working at a table job my entire life. During this time I never stopped doing art. My mom realized that I was struggling for my way and he sent me to a course to learn Photoshop in 2003. I found out that I had to learn 3D. And after stepping into 3d my path was more clear. I started working on TV channels for summer time, did so many concept paintings in Photoshop and had fallen in love with Matte Painting.
