She began her photography works seriously with the encouragement of Faruk Akba? during the Northern Aegean trip in 2006. Afterwards she attended many trips again with the leadership of Faruk Akba? and got one on one education. Meanwhile she has always been used to the presence of photography since her childhood because her mother is a photographer.
During some trips initially she was taking only memoir type photographs but later it turned into a passion of keeping visual records. Her works, which then turned into a lifestyle for her, also became a new way of expression for her.
She became an IFOD member in 2007. She continues her improvement with the technical and academic suggestions and supports of NSU FAA (Ninth of September University, Fine Arts Academy) lecturer Assistant Professor Dr. A. Beyhan Özdemir, still attends and contributes to IFOD events.
