Sema Gurun studied drawing and painting at the National Academy of Art and the Art Students League of New York.
During a period of stay in Paris in the 1980's she painted with a group of painters known as La Fleur, an offshoot group of independent-minded artists from the Académie des Beaux-Arts who worked together and gave each other support, similar in spirit to the Art Students League of New York.
While pursuing careers in public service and psychoanalysis she worked sporadically and periodically in the plein air mode of painting. She has exhibited in many group shows in Manhattan.
These works are a cross section of her figurative and expressionistic style developed through the decades.
At present she is working on a book about dreams and how they find their expression in painting.
