Istanbul-based Sena Runa worked as an HR specialist for seven years - until she quit the corporate world to pursue her passion for making intricate paper art, a process known as quilling.
Runa, 32, has been working full-time as an artist for seven months and tells i100.co.uk she believes everyone should "follow their dreams".
She began quilling as a hobby in 2012 and says:
Sometimes I feel scared and sometimes I don’t. I just believe in what I do and I know I’ll continue to create in the future.
