birim portrait


I was born in Bursa, Turkey in 1958. I can honestly say I have spent most of my childhood days surrounded by horses. The horses my family owned were a very important starting point in my painting career, and I have spent many of my days since drawing them. I have observed their joys, affections and passions very closely.

This love of horses took me to study veterinary medicine at University. Whilst studying, I still continued to paint regularly and it remained one of the most important things to me. As I learnt the muscular, organ and bone structure of horses in our anatomy classes, I regularly drew numerous sketches. This provided me with a great opportunity to have a sound foundation for my paintings.
