Bismillahirrahmanirrahim (With the name of Allah (God) who protect and forgives)

  Born in Istanbul in 1944.
  The drawing courses Alpa took from Nevin Çokay, a painter, had an important effect on her interest in arts. Her love for Ebru (Turkish Marble) begun with a present given to her, a work of Mustafa Düzgünman, a famous Ebru artist.
  Alpa met the basic Ebru techniques during the courses she attended in 1999, given by Vedat Vaytaş. Later, she improved her classical Ebru techniques while she was studying with Hikmet Barutçugil for 8 months. After that period of work, she learned a new technique of the use of modern figures from Osman Şimşek, who was one of the instructors at the Minister of Culture and the developer of this technique.
  Lately, she has focused on the works created by calligraphies written on Ebru, by an approbated calligraph. In most of these works, the calligraphy follows the Ebru figures. These works of art combine two distinguised branches of Turkish traditional art, Calligraphy and Ebru, in a creative design.
  On 5th May, 2008, a board consisting of experts from Fine Arts Faculty of Mimar Sinan University, Directorate of Turkish and İslamic Arts Museum, Diractorate of Istanbul Archeology Museums and Directorate of Topkapi Palace Museum, conveined by Directorate of Culture and Tourism of Istanbul Governorship approved her Ebru designs’ quality as authentic works of art.
  Alpa's works of art have also been displayed at the mixed exhibition, on the occasion of Turkish Week in Kuwait, in May 2008. Her next exhibition will take place at Tarık Zafer Tunaya Culture Center, in May 2009.
