Selda grew up in Izmit and along the West Coast of the Turkey. graduated from the Kocaeli University in 2007 with a Bachelor degree in International Relations. She studied in Germany, Leipzig university during her last semester. Following graduation, she moved to Miami started a family as well as started her career in Art.Selda considers her work a form of visual storytelling, where each and every painting represents a page of a story handwritten with colors. What made you start to paint?Some feelings can not be expressed with words, they belong to a higher place where the words has no meaning. Whenever I have no word to say but drifting in emotions I dive into my colors. They talk; I listen. They dance; I watch. It’s very peaceful. Where did you get the idea from? What did inspire you?You mean dustpan 🙂 I did not see anyone using a dustpan before. But in terms of inspiration everything inspires me as long as I stay on my own ground. I have a playlist of a few epic musicians and I always paint with music. I really believe in the souls of that kind of music connects with art. They synchronize like they have known each other for a long time. I love to be the energy for the colors to land where ever they would like to land so they make their own art. Energy of the people around me also very effective. To who I make the painting and with whom I’m doing it changes a lot of things. Could you tell me a bit more about yourself?I’m an International Relations graduate but I never pursued that as a career. I have found Political Relations too heartless in a world where human relations are suffering most of the time. We started a Real Estate company in 2013. All these years I have been delighted to see the best works of the world known architects, interior designers and artists (I live in Miami; we have many of them 🙂 and met with amazing people around the world. But something was missing as I was the watcher of the other people’s creations. I wanted to create something. something colorful, something peaceful, and I wanted to share them with people so they can see creating something is not that hard and everyone can do it, and everyone should do it. It’s very healing.
