Welcome to the first page of my portfolio. My name is İpek. I was born and raised in İstanbul, but I now live in Eskişehir, where I attended university. Silky Way Art is the name of my artist brand. It derives from my given name, İpek, which means “silk” in English and is an amalgamation of the Silk Road and the Milky Way.
I’ve always loved taking photos, and to improve my skills, I completed my photographic training at the Eskişehir Photographic Arts Association (EFSAD) in 2015. After my studies, I decided to become a stock photographer and have been selling images globally ever since.
At present, I contribute to microstock sites such as Shutterstock, iStock, Dreamstime, and Adobe Stock, among others. Every day, I work on new images to improve and expand my portfolio. You can find my images on my Instagram account @ipekmorel.
In addition to photography, I’m also interested in digital art and AI art. After discovering NFT art, I started creating collages, digital paintings, and mixed media from my own images. It’s exciting for me to create new works of art and share them with the world.
I believe this is a fantastic opportunity for me to demonstrate and express myself through art. You can see my artwork on my other Instagram account @silkywayart.
