Rukiye Garip : “I was born in Bartin, Turkey in 1964. In 1989 I started to see relative as a painting teacher. I worked for 20 years in different provinces and schools and then retired. I am still continuing my painting work in Balikesir at my own workshop. I do my pictures realistically. I want to picture as much as possible the natural beauties that are rapidly disappearing, which can not be reversed. Not to get rid of the details; I want to notice and notice the tiny, beautiful, details that give me happiness. I think your actual distinguishing feature is hidden in detail. I enjoy using the peaceful effect of the blue and green in my paintings”.
