Born in 1991, Öykü discovered her passion for the arts at a young age. A graduate of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, she spent several years working in theaters before transitioning to illustrating children’s books. Her artistry has been showcased in numerous literature magazines and children’s publications. Now based in Istanbul, Öykü finds fulfillment in her work, likening it to a connection with nature, or the warmth of embracing a tree.
