I am a feminist Artist, scholar and a journalist. Native of Turkey, I came to USA to study art. After receiving my MFA from Indiana University, I worked and studied with Judy Chicago. I received my PhD, with a focus on Gender in German Turkish Migrant Cinema. For the past six years I have been organizing and curating a Women Exposed Art Show here in Bloomington: The show creates a space for local and international Women Artist to showcase their talents, and in doing so also to raise money for the local women’s shelter, The Middle way House and awareness about domestic violence. Over the years I have created number of art work from a female/feminist gaze for this and other shows.
