After graduating from Robert College in Istanbul, I got accepted to Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design’s Dual Degree Program with a full scholarship. I received a B.A. in Art History and a B.F.A. in Painting. I completed internships at Ralph Lauren Black Label Fabrics and Dieu Donne Papermill experiencing fabric design and development and handmade paper making process. My passion for the handmade and textiles led me to Iceland with the support of Brown International Scholars Fellowship. I traveled and researched the relationship between Icelandic textiles, patterns and landscape and collaborated with a musician to create an audio-visual installation upon my return. In my last year, I studied abroad in Florence FUJI Studios and learned the traditional methods of silk screen printing, pattern design and fabric painting. I also did some freelance costume design and styling and explored other career paths than textiles and the arts in NYC and Istanbul.

Currently, I am preparing for PhD programs in the US. Read Less
