roksan portrait
Born, grew up and studied painting in Istanbul Turkey, I currently live and work in Galiano Island, BC. My work has been exhibited in several galleries and art shows in both Vancouver and Istanbul.

Along my path, I learn about life mostly through drawing and painting. However while working I do not think. I stare into the blank surface until I see lines and points then I draw them as they appear on paper or canvas. I feel I fluently transfer the imagery revealed by personal and collective subconscious which I like to share with all.
