Who We Are
Matla’s story based on the paintings which have been drawn since her childhood and the photographs which have been taken since 2005 by the founder/designer Duygu Özdemir Kibar. Although she had her education on civil engineering and she has worked as an engineer in private sector for 8 years, she always imagined to create a job in which she can always enjoy and further develop herself, associating this job with painting and photography. She decided to go to India at a moment of exhaustion due to intensive workload in a period she thought she spent her life and creativity too early. She find the chance to question herself within chaos and tranquility of India. This was a journey, after which she returned Ankara with desire and enthusiasm to produce something she enjoy. After arriving Ankara, she left from her job to realize her dreams.
