Rana Balca Ülker

Couldn’t find too much information on embroidery artist, Rana Balca Ülker, but we admired her work so much that we had to share. The Istanbul-based talent has a degree in fashion and textile art.  She combines her acrylic paintings with embroidery and conveys a portrait imbued with deep expression and feelings.  Flowers and foliage are repeated images in many of her paintings.  She also created a series that focuses very powerfully on the eyes.  

The artist can be followed on Facebook and on Instagram.
