  • Biography

    Yesim finds an intimate joy and excitement in creating bold, dynamic and spontaneous contemporary paintings in watercolour. Her predominant subjects are inspired from the organic design elements of nature she experienced during her extensive travels within Australia and overseas. She enjoys exploring this versatile medium by incorporating different techniques and applications aiming to expand the boundaries of the traditional watercolour principles. She uses the quality of watercolour pigments to achieve different textural effects which adds excitement, character and dimension into her paintings.  

    Yesim has been working as a senior experimental scientist for the last 30 years, during which she was able to pursue her ambition, she continues her artistic journey and paint with passion in her home studio based in Melbourne. Her paintings have been featured in six solo and numerous joint exhibitions such as the National Art and Sculpture Museum, Izmir, the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and many prestigious art shows, including “The Ten of the Best” category online exhibition at the Camberwell Art Show 2020. She regularly provides demonstrations, runs workshops and loves teaching at the Camberwell Community Centre and the Victorian Artists Society. She is a member of AGRA, VAS and WSV.

    Education

    Yesim’s lifelong interest in art, particularly with watercolour has been heavily influenced by taking workshops and private tuitions from Tony Smibert and Anthony Sum, who both combine the Eastern and the Western techniques and philosophies. She has also attended workshops of many leading artists such as Herman Pekel, David Taylor, Alvaro Castagnet, Ross Patterson, John Orlando-Birt and Linda Kemp to equip herself with a strong foundation of knowledge and technique awareness.  

    Yesim studied Food Engineering at the Middle East Technical University, Ankara. She then completed her further studies with the Swinburne University of Technology and the University of Melbourne.
