A trip to Greece in 2010 with a serendipitous stop in Turkey sparked my fascination with this earthy vibrant land and her warm, generous people.
Istanbul, “City of the World’s Desire”, is a gorgeous, mysterious city that gets under your skin. Bold patterns of crimson, gold, and blue dazzled my eyes, while my heart beat along with the pulse of the city.
I returned in 2012 to recreate the images already etched in my mind.
