Lena began drawing at age 3 and later her mother encouraged Lena to draw the human figure believing, like the Renaissance artists, that the human figure is the foundation of an artist’s education.
Being self-taught, Lena enjoys experimenting and painting in different media without trying to brand herself with a specific style.
Her inspiration comes from people who love her art and their gratitude makes her keep painting. Being recognized is not important to her. Most importantly she loves feeling connected
Award-winning artist, member of three Galleries, Lena has participated in many Juried Shows across US.
