Rukiye Garip

Rukiye Garip: I was born in Bartin, Turkey in 1964. I graduated from Gazi University Vocational Education Faculty painting department in 1985. I worked as a stylist after graduation. In my remaining time, I made hand decorations in a ceramic workshop. I opened a ceramic workshop in 1987 with a group of my friends. In 1989, I started working as an art teacher.

After working in different provinces and schools for 20 years, I retired. I still continue my painting works in my own workshop in Balıkesir.

I make my realistic pictures. Everything that looks good to me in nature can be the subject of my pictures. I want to illustrate as much as possible natural beauties that disappear rapidly and cannot be returned. Not getting rid of the details; I want to notice and make tiny, beautiful, happy details.

I think the main distinguishing feature is hidden in the details. I like to use the peaceful effect of blue and green in my pictures.
