Portrait illustration of Hatiye, drawn in vivid colours on a dark and warm orange background. She is a medium light-skinned person with a dark and short bob haircut. She smiles with her back turned and looks backwards. She is wearing a coat resembling the yellow sunflowers. An imaginary blue bird, which she always uses in her illustrations, is flying towards her face.

Hatiye is a disabled illustrator, comic artist and designer from Istanbul. She likes to draw birds, flowers, and ordinary moments. She is interested in accessible illustration, comics, graphic medicine and experiments with onomatopoeia and field recordings. She is also the founder and creative producer of the Accessible Lines project.
