with a background in Architecture & Environmental Design. She has

lived and worked in many parts of the US, UK, Europe, and is currently based between Berlin, DE, Ankara, TR and New York, US.


She creates performance - based images that playfully explore the nomadic experience of 'being' in constructed realities. Sense of self and authenticity, perception of time, memory and loss, the notions of belonging and alienation in contemporary realities are recurrent

themes in her work; which has been published widely around the

world and exhibited internationally in museums, galleries, and art fairs.
