 For a time the artist worked as the manager of the Vakko Art Gallery. Working for the Culture Ministry she illustrated book covers and worked on poster graphics. Besides teaching art she nowadays works in her own studio.

 Tülay Ilhans first paintings dealt with environmental pollution and human contact.
On her quest for colour and form she produced abstract collages on over-urbanisation and pollution.

The distinguished stages of her career are reflected by evident differences in style and subject.

Up to date she has opened four exhibitions, expressing the facts of life in a semi-abstract work language.  

The artist remarking on her work:

“I transfer events I live or feel, filtered through emotions and thoughts, in my very own manner into my work. The most important elements in my paintings are the recurring shades of colours and blots.”

Tülay Ilhan continues to work in her own studio.
