Alev Necile Dinc is an American artist of Turkish heritage whose works have been described as taking the onlooker to a mystical world of beauty and fantasy where everything is alive with a sense of fluid motion. Her imagination and craftsmanship combine to create dynamic compositions of amazing depth and expression which are at once both intriguing and disarming. The artist extends an invitation to enter into her dreamscape where ethereal dancing figures and whimsical horse like creatures celebrate life in vibrant hues of blue, green, pink, fuchsia and red. Loving and playful in vision, Necile's paintings capture a pure and sublime essence, inspiring the viewer with wonder, joy and enthusiasm.

Born in Turkey, Necile studied painting and design at the Institute of Technology in Ankara.

Immortal composers and artists such as Mozart, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Gauguin inspire her passion. Her works blend fantasy with reality and the past with the present, in unique depictions of a futuristic paradise. Using a largely abstract impressionistic style, Necile creates idyllic scenes reminiscent of ancient Persian gardens, yet aglow with airy, surreal elements. She works in a wide range of media'-oils, acrylics, watercolors and pastels, exploring unusual techniques to get a variety of interesting effects.
