Artist Bio

In Belsize Park, Özlem paints in the house where Piet Mondrian and Ben Nicholson both worked, just before the Second World War. Originally from Istanbul, Özlem loved to paint from an early age and was deeply influenced by the variety and depth of artistic creativity throughout the cultures of the Mediterranean region, from the ancient monuments of Ephesus to the colorful traditional woven handicrafts from the East of Turkey.

Moving to London in 2015 she began to refine her artistic style, while her background in Biology and botany, and passion for science provided a broad conceptual palette. Always curious about and inspired by nature, Özlem focused on the joy of works featuring natural scenes and imaginary worlds. She creates an idea, mixing it with her feelings and daily experience of life in which she is constantly exploring her love of classic cinema and literature, resulting in works with boundless vitality and joy.
