I was born and raised in Turkey. Then moved to Australia in early 2011 and has been trying to get used to the local eight-legged house intruders and slithering visitors to our garden ever since. 
I also work as an animator and character/concept designer, but has been called away from this affair as my relationship with children’s books becomes more serious.
 Nowadays, I live in Brisbane with my husband. In our small home studio together, we're playing ‘Children’s Booksmithing’.
