 I was born in Istanbul to an artist family. My father, mother, my grandfather also my mother’s grandfather were all artists. I studied painting at Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul between 1982 and 1987. While realizing the costumes and stage settings for an amateur theater group, I started working in Metin Deniz atelier in 1987. Here I received training on practiced stage settings and costumes, sculpture, and art direction. Then I went on to work professionally in these fields.


I was involved in the establishment and activity planning of the 1st Istanbul Biennial in 1989.


I moved from Istanbul to Bodrum where I began tutoring and organizing workshops for children and adults in 1990.


In 1994 I went to Germany to make costumes for the Karlsruhe Museum. Since 1999 I have held many solo exhibitions in Istanbul, Bodrum, and the USA. I also participated in many group exhibitions. My two solo exhibitions in the USA were: in International Visions at the Gallery, Washington DC, in 2002, and in The Gallery at The Marmara, Manhattan in 2006. In 2006, I initiated the founding of a contemporary art group by the name” The Flying University” in Bodrum. I worked as a gallery director in 2007.

While I continue my artistic activities, I also deal with alternative therapies, healthy living, nutritional medicine, art therapy, and yoga philosophy. I started to work in personal development group practices and workshops in Istanbul in 2002 and in Bodrum. In 2002, I began to work in art therapy, in which I have been interested since 1985. I was working in art and at the same time, she was interested in alternative therapies, yoga philosophy, how to live without illness, and art therapy. I participated in workshops about that.  I worked on art therapy at her personal atelier in Bodrum between 2004- 2010.


Since 1994 I have been writing articles for various publications. 

In 2018, I started working online on life guidance, spiritual guidance, and guided meditations.  You can still find relevant studies, meditations, and affirmations on the “MysiaLuna Light Sages” channel. Unfortunately, all of them are in Turkish.

 Recently, I started working on digital graphics, as digital art studies have become an area of interest, and it is exciting to progress in this field.
