Major project:

Diaries Written in the Room

I call it Diaries Written in the Room because these works are about hidden feelings and identity problems in daily life, and they are quite sensitive. This is a changing generation, and we live in a real world built with virtual signs. What is the truth and which one is the real me? This question is always in my mind. Through these works, I am trying to express my true opinions through identities, the 'perfect' marriage and the beauty industry.

  • Contact

  • My inspiration mostly comes from the details found in life. Young people are probably the most sensitive to this dizzily changing environment and I am one of them. It is often said that each individual is a reflection of their time. Developing as a woman, I note the facts of private life in order to track the modern mentality of the female experience and assume that my emotions and life can reflect parts of a woman’s psychology in self-pursuit and self-existence, as it is today.
