I am sorry that I haven't been very active with my assemblage art recently. I've been playing a lot of piano, having been initially inspired by the beautiful music by contemporary Turkish composer Toygar Isikli that I hear in so many of the Turkish TV drama series that I've been watching (no, I do not speak Turkish--I watch with English subtitles). A little known fact for Americans is that Turkey is actually the second largest exporter of drama series after the United States! This piece is a haunting cello piece from the series, Fatmagul'un Secu Ne? called, "Imkansizin Ortsinda." I listened to the original over and over and then figured out, by ear, a piano arrangement. Here is the original piece:

And here is my piano arrangement. It's hard to compete with the haunting sound of the cello, my absolute favorite instrument, but nevertheless I hope you enjoy!

I plan to post more of my piano music and performances in the future. If interested in signing up for my newsletter, please click on this link which will take you to my home page.
As always, thank you for your interest!
I am 57 years old, a wife of 26 years, a mother of a wonderful and independent 18-year-old daughter, a clinical psychologist who treats adults in private practice, and last, but definitely not least, an artist. Whew! That was a mouth full. My passion is creating one-of-a-kind whimsical sculptural animals, dolls, and cake toppers (with a little multi-media collage thrown in for good measure). I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them!
