I am so fortunate to live on a wooded campus in the center of Istanbul. While walking to the studio recently, all prepared with ideas in my head of what I would work on that day, I noticed the gorgeous autumn leaves all along the path. Fig leaves, walnut, ivy, wisteria, oak, and many more I don't know the names of. These autumn leaves on a beautiful, blue sky day became such a source of inspiration and were such fun to play with! And, by the way, putting fig leaves through the press results in a beautiful aroma of fig in the studio!
