Field of Activity

Painting
"Painting is absolutely vital for me. On a day when I have worked well, I am in a perfect mood. I am truly alive. The world is beautiful. Life makes sense. But if I am not satisfied with my work, it is like the end of the world. Painting makes life really worth living. My life is in harmony with my work."
(Leyla Gamsız, Ali Alpaslan ile röportajından, Gösteri Dergisi Ocak 1988.)
