As an artist, I aim to capture the true essence in the beauty of the world. I hope to capture the elements of nature that move and transform us- Whether it is the ever-empowering oceans or the quiet grace and stillness in the land; an intriguing visage or wildlife in nature- a new way of seeing, connecting us to the higher realms of consciousness. Let us walk in beauty….
After twenty two years of creative design work in architecture and show set /interior design industries, creating a range of restaurant, retail, corporate and themed entertainment attractions for major Hollywood studios such as Disney and Universal, Seda decided to concentrate on her deep passion for painting which was always evident in her work in any art form.
In 2000 she began studying painting with 3rd generation portrait artist Arthur Bjorn Egeli, who apprenticed color with American impressionist Henry Henche; then for the past five years she worked every spring with Armenian master artist Armen Atayan in Yerevan, Armenia; who taught at the famed St Petersburg Academy in Russia. Other artist mentors have been Barry John Reybould in Venice, Italy, Cyndra- Branford in Carmel, Mark Strickland & Jove Wang. Seda currently studies with Dave Gallup at Studio Channel Islands.
Living & working by the sea in Malibu, Seda continues her inspirational journey with nature every day.
