Cansu TastanIstanbul / Izmir / Bodrum, TR
Hi, I'm Cansu from Istanbul.
I am nerdy user experience designer who decided pursue illustration and painting. For the past five years I have been training in scientific botanical illustration and have two published children's books in turkish.
I like to combine traditional and digital mediums, this is the reason my style is inspired by flat minimal designs as well as watercolors and inks.
I love traveling, eating, cooking, sailing and gaming.

One of my favorite things to do in central Izmir is to take a walk on the seaside or the central park, get some fresh air and grab a quick bite. Here is a list of my favorite dishes and places in walking distance.
This place is special to me because, it is the small, charming part of the city I like to escape to. There are no motor vehicles allowed so everybody is walking or cycling. As a kid, I practiced my bike riding skills here, in my teen years I used to visit the beaches and the parks with friends, as an artist I still like to take inspiration from the buildings and streets. I enjoy the sights, history and multicultural elements. The Istanbul Biennale usually takes place on locations listed here on the map. Sometimes I like to sail here or just take the ferry for 30 minutes to enjoy some fresh seafood. There are many things to explore and enjoy when you visit the Büyükada in Istanbul.
