Patternbank are excited to share with you the work of embroidery artist Rana Balca Ülker. Living in Istanbul, Turkey, Rana graduated from the Fine Arts faculty of Fashion and Textiles at Yeditepe University.
Rana’s interest in fashion and embroidered textiles has continued throughout her work, combining her paintings into embroidered portraits that look deep into the expressions and feelings we portray to others. Rana likes to combine floral and foliage within powerful portraits, sometimes protecting the subject from view.

Other pieces are dissected features of eyes and some elements within the subjects are left blank, leaving the viewer wondering the feelings and emotions of the model. Follow her on Instagram for updates of her work and coming exhibitions of her work here.
