I am from Istanbul, Turkey. My daughter moved to Edmonton 28 years ago. Her three children were born in Canada. I visited them many times. After I lost my husband, I came to Canada to live.
I am a senior. I like learning new things, being active and making good friends.
When I was young, I finished college. I learned sewing, painting and other skills with my hands. I can make hats, bags, flowers and other things.
Three years ago, I started oil painting at a seniors centre. I paint landscapes, flowers and old buildings from my own country. I forget time when I am painting.
