Born 1983, Ankara, Turkey. I originally graduated in Environmental Engineering, but instead of this I chose this entirely different path for my life and have been working full time as a botanical artist for over 10 years. I am very glad I made this decision, though as the child of a botanist father and growing up surrounded by wild nature made my decision easy.

Making a series of paintings, creating collections is that I love, and it is all about to do what I love. Here you can read about some of the main projects that I was a part. Some has completed, some is still on progress.

Many workshops have been held in many years, and many more will be in the future. Check out the current workshops and art tours, maybe we would have a chance to meet in one of those.

Almost all my illustration over the years are in my galleries. Here you can see the recent illustrations.

Işık Güner

Botanical Artist

Arty Morocco

El tour Arty Marocco ha estado muy bien, con Isik he aprendido mucho de su técnica en unos dias de trabajo intenso, es una profesora muy generosa y paciente, espero poder repetir, el lugar era increible y nos han tratado como reinas, inolvidable!

Original Artwork

I love Isik’s original painting of the Lady Slipper, which has such precise detail and is so beautiful! She’s a particular inspiration to me among other artists.

Original Artwork

Işık Güner is one of the very best young contemporary botanical artists and I am very proud to have two of her original paintings from the series ‘The Beauty of Orchids’. Numerous contemporary botanical artists excel in their technical skills at correctly illustrating the most minute plant parts, but lack in composition skills. Işık’s paintings are instead characterised by an extremely accurate depiction of the plant morphology as well as by a very pleasant composition.
