Graduated with honors throughout. She opened her first solo exhibition in the same year and took part in many fairs and exhibitions afterwards. For a while she works on various designs with his collectors. In addition to being a painter, in different fields such as posters, album covers, wine labels, scarves and wallpaper.She also did graphic designs. She continues to work in her studio in Istanbul.

Deniz, who likes to tell stories and construct imaginary spaces, deals with the present with mythological images, with references from the history of art. She processes her imaginary scenes with a rich narrative language with the methods she found as a result of many technical researches. She prefers to work with water-based materials that are most suitable for her detail-oriented character. With the effect of being born in Hong Kong, Deniz, who has a patternist and volatile painting understanding unique to the Far East art, has brought a drawing method called scanning, which is used by old masters, to the present day, starting from the engraving technique. By combining this method with watercolor, she produces illustrative paintings with a dense technical background.
