YLVIA ASAL was born in the Black Sea area of Turkey. She believes she was actually born an artist. Her formative education, at the Girls’ Traditional, Technical and Vocational Middle/High School, was followed by an intensive arts program in Istanbul, focusing on technique and design, along with accounting.

As a multimedia artist, Ylvia works with a wide array of mediums: sculpture with Clay, wax and fabric (soft sculpture), painting, and textile art such as working with fabric and yarn. Her greatest passion is ‘making lace’, which is a centuries old technique of creating handmade lace. Her life in the United States took her to Business Accounting school in Philadelphia and in 2012, she opened her art business, Anatolia Art and Crafts Studio. Ylvia received the New Beginnings Awards from the State of New Jersey as well as an award for Outstanding Achievement honoring her for her art business in 2015. She was honored to be chosen as a NJ Council for the Arts Fellow in 2018. She also participated in the Tastefully South Jersey exhibit at the Perkins Center for the Arts in Collingswood, NJ.

She has been a Teaching Artist in Belly Dancing, Lace Making, Embroidery, Turkish Paper Marbling “Ebru” and the Art of Turkish Food at the Perkins Center for the Arts in Moorestown, NJ, as well as in local art centers. Ylvia is always looking for new opportunities to share her ideas and her love of the artsby exhibiting, teaching, participating in and partnering with other artists, communities and cultural organizations.
