“The Creative Adult Is The Child Who Survived”
Deniz is a mixed-media artist who loves to tell her stories in three dimensions. She earned her degree in engineering & economics and embarked on a professional career for 14 years.
She is a natural storyteller who found mixed media art 16 years ago to express her creative side and never looked back. For Deniz, art begins with prompts from nature – objects found along the sea and lake shores, forests, fields and meadows. As she gathers these objects, she visualizes connections that might exist with the viewer or how each object might be related to another. Her works are a delicate balance of small treasures that are fitted to tell the story. She loves giving new life to old and once loved objects – she is fascinated by the way their history adds to the detail and uniqueness of each piece.
A proud member of the Women’s Art Association of Canada, Deniz co-curated and installed more than 40 art shows since becoming a member in 2009. She continues to exhibit through the city. During Covid isolation days she created 7 websites for online group art shows &artist galleries and several art books for other artists.
