Hello and welcome! 

I’m so glad you’re here.

Art, knit and crochet are my passion. I graduated from Central St. Martin's College of Art & Design, studied (BA Honours) Textile Design. I was born in Turkey and moved to London at 1997.After studying Fashion Design and working many years as a fashion designer, I changed my mind to studying again to Textile Design. Love colours, highly dyslexic and mother of abeautiful girl.

I have being knitting, cross stitching and crocheting since I was 9.My mum tough me everything I know. My personal interests;hand knitting, stream of consciousness knitting:) knitted felt, felt, stitch, embroidery, textile art, soft sculpture, crochet, macramé, machine knitting, colourful knitted creatures to striking upholstered furniture designs, rugs.

I have always fascination with colour and texture. I love to give inspirations to everyone. I created my facebook page called Textile Design and Designers Platform while I study at Central St Martin. All of my friends were asking my opinion of their work and idea come up from there. I love to share, love to give inspirations to students or artist. After graduate I started to more focus on my facebook page and Fiber Art Now magazine editor (Marcia Young) found me from my page. She asked me if we can do something together. I started to help them to found English Textile Artist and called myself researcher. Then later on now I am writing also article about designers and their work. You can read my article to the magazine Fiber Art Now. Publishing in USA but you can subscribe from their web site.
