My initial recollection of any artistic aspirations was my attempt at three >years of age to decorate the wooden staircase in our home by painting fish on >each step. My parents had the audacity to attempt to remove my youthful >artwork, but by using a kid's weapons of crying and tears, I quickly drew a line >beyond which they knew they could not go. Quickly retreating from the fray, they >demonstrated their pride in my precocious splashings of paint by placing >plastic wrap over each of my fishes, thereby preserving them for what seemed to me >at the time to be posterity. > >The reverence shown for my talent by my parents instilled in me an >inspiration for artistry that has stayed with me since that time. That inspiration >would surface again in the future. > >Notwithstanding that my gaily colored fishes clashed with our classic English >furniture, the conflict in styles became secondary to the encouragement given >to me by my parents. > >As I grew older, traditional considerations prevailed, and I studied hard, >finally achieving my university diploma and medical degree. Having satisfied my >familial obligation, I began to understand that being an artist is real work, >requiring further education and a honing of my skills. That in mind, I >enrolled at the London College of Fashion Design, where I spent two years before >receiving my diploma in fashion design. > >In between stints as a fashion designer, I traveled to the four corners of >the earth, and each place I visited added to my desire for unique artistic >_expression. Wherever I went, I found new influences directing my brush strokes or >guiding my hands as I worked at my paintings or sculptures. > >As I entered my thirties, I was drawn more and more toward a new life focus, >pulling at me from every direction. In the same way that my medical >background was useful in making me familiar with human anatomy, so my work as a fashion >designer inspired the use of different materials and ornaments instead merely >of paint. > >In addition, living in Istanbul on the line dividing East from West, Europe >from Asia, has given me a unique perspective that is reflected, I believe, in >my artistry. I leave it to those who view my paintings to determine for >themselves the extent to which my work has become post-impressionistic and to which >I have pioneered in nouveau art forms.
