I had been researching local artists in Washington, DC when I saw her name: Nihal Kececi. It was a Turkish name, which was what caught my attention. I found her on Facebook and sent her a message. She replied quickly, which was a pleasant surprise. Then she invited me to a reception she was having in Alexandria, and I decided to meet her.
|It was very fun to work with her.|
|I enjoyed the work so much, I didn't even realize how quickly the time went.|
Her style is great – her colors are brilliant and her images take me to places in my dreams. Especially her figure paintings, which amaze me. After meeting her, we kept talking online and I had a chance to help her in a studio she was renting. Now she is going to teach me how to stretch canvases and make frames… and hopefully painting as well :):)
I’ve never met an artist like her. She’s always happy and very friendly. She has a big smile. :):)
Here are some my favorite of hers
|I WILL BE THERE|
|SORROW AND DIGNITY|
|STRENGTH OF VULNERABILITY|

Or find her on facebook, she'll answer you.
