Emel Say was born in 1927. Her grandfather was a politician, who left the Committee of Union and Progress and opened a dance hall. Her mother, Zehra Say, was the first woman in modern Turkey to be married at an official wedding. Emel's mind was always on music. When she was fifteen, she received singing classes from Professor Carl Ebert, who had established Ankara Conservatory. At first, Emel Say wanted to be an opera artist, but she changed her mind when she fell in love with a piece of land in Hatay, southern Turkey. She had to put her interest in music on hold when she marry. Her husband, Fuat Say, unlike the tolerance that Fuat Say had shown her mother Zehra, did not send Emel to school, nor was this really possible in Hatay at the time. Raising her three sons was the only thing she did until she divorced her husband when she was 30 years old. After her divorce, her interest in music did not come to fruition; her mother got sick, so she had to focus on getting a job and income. She started her work life as secretary of Fuat Bezmen. She worked for him for around ten years. She worked in the United States for about five years. When her mother, famous painter Zehra Say, went into the later stages of Alzheimers, she was no longer able to continue painting. Zehra made her daughter Emel promise to finish her painting Maui Adas, which she had started to paint from a postcard Emel had brought back from a trip to Hawaii. She did not know how she could paint. At first, she cried, but then she tried to paint and from that point on did not stop. She completed her mother's painting and it was display at an exhibition at Cicek Bar. There she was discovered by sculptor Gurdal Duyar, who at first asked what had happened to Maui Adas, and then when Emel told him that her mother had insisted she finish it, she tried at it. Duyar expressed to her that she was a natural talent and had been a painter within all along. If it was not for this reassuring encounter, she may not have gone into painting at all in her life. She started painting after the age of 60. Together with Duyar, who became close friend of hers and other friends and family, she would often work on paintings and listen to music together late at night. One of these nights, Duyar made a portrait of one of Fazl's musician friends starting at midnight and finishing towards morning, as recalled by this friend of Fazl's.
