Alena is a modern Ukrainian artist, successfully sold abroad. She finished her studies at Notre Dame De Victoria College in San Francisco, then at the Kiev University of International Relations, but decided to devote herself to art. She spent most of her childhood in Italy, on the Ligurian coast, where her father used to surfe, and this led to love of a marine theme in the paintings of a young artist. As a child, she studied painting under the guidance of her mother, therefore from an early age, artistic activity received full support from the parents. Equestrian sport is an old tradition of the her family. Alena adores horses, she does horse-riding every day and even participates and takes prizes in competitions. While in New York, she likes to listen to jazz. This amazing city atmosphere together with the nice music inspires Elena greatly. Her realistic paintings can be divided into 3 main categories: portraits, horses and a marine theme. Her goal is to create mood and emotion by manipulating the light and using muted colors.
