Sunay Home Page

Hello! my name is Sunay Birik, I was born in eastern Anatolia in the city of Erzurum a place surrounded by high mountains,with harsh and beautiful nature lying under the slopes of mount Ararat.
Like many of my fellow turkish citizens i am some kind of a child of the Ottoman Empire: Through my mother, tcherkess
From my father, former officer of the Turkish Republican Army, I am a girl of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk founder of modern Turkey.
I paint for almost 30 years and had many exhibitions in Izmit, Ankara, Adana and Istanbul in Türkey, USA and France where i am living. Some of my paintings are exposed in Suleiman Demirel museum and Istanbul University
I would be so pleased to read your comments...
