Artful Inspirations

Create Collect Decorate

Ayşen Gürel Sile shares her experiences and sources of inspiration and creates compositions visually and verbally. Her "Artful Inspirations" are compiled into three books with transitions between them. 

In these books, Create - Collect - Decorate, you will find the versatile artist's creations, cultural memories, and traces of the land she was born. Ayşen migrated from Istanbul, a city with a rich multicultural history, to America at a young age.


The beautiful and poster-worthy compositions were captured in photographs by Faruk Sile.

It all begins with imagining. This book, where you will find clues to turn your dreams into designs, might awaken the artist within you to inspire and embark on creative projects.


It is my belief that my first steps begin with dreams.

The early steps I took were pursuits of art that enchanted me.

My journey culminated into the books now grasped by your hands.


“Artful Inspirations” is a trilogy book series consisting of Create - Collect - Decorate.

While the volumes have distinct titles, you will find transitions across the volumes due to their close relationship. The pages, which consist of compositions I have prepared in a poster approach, were carefully selected from approximately seven thousand photographs taken by my husband Faruk Sile, a graphic designer and professional photographer.


My sources of inspiration, the collections that emerged from the objects I have gathered over many years, reflect insights I acquired during the years I worked as an artist, designer, and decorator. When I speak of collections, you should not merely think of physical objects; memories, too, I collected and wrote on them as if I had a chat with you. 


You will discover my stories of what I observed while traveling some parts of the world, the things that gave me inspiration and left an impression on me, and the topics that are dear to my heart. Although I have lived in the United States for forty years, it would not be possible for me to not speak of the love in my heart and the longing I feel for the legendary city of Istanbul, where I was born and raised, as well as my beautiful home country of Türkiye.  


Through my books, I desire to leave a mark on daily living with small artistic touches and aim to present my “Life Exhibition.”


I did it my way,
