Meltem has been a professional painter for the last fifteen years.

Artistic Statement

My work is drawn from sources as diverse as the Human Figure; the constantly changing landscape around me and my life experiences. On viewing my work the viewer is drawn into the painting through layering of oils and using a variety of media to complete the finished work. Through this process the painting itself takes on a life of its own allowing the viewer to step into the painting and start a visual journey with the artist. With my ability to use different media for different subjects, my work remains as fresh as when it was first seen and continues to evolve constantly from where I started my journey into art.
