Thank you for visiting my Art Portfolio!
Although born and educated (mostly) in the UK I now live just outside Athens in Greece, close to the sea, which is where I grew up and recall my happiest childhood memories. My art is very much informed by my education and practice in interior design; as I like to say, "A room full of colour is a room full of joy!" so colour harmony and balance play an integral role in my creative joy and expression.
One (large) part of my artwork is borne from a fascination with the natural world, in particular the underwater world, my own heritage and a lifetime of travel and exposure to diverse cultures -I worked on cruise ships for 8 years! While my more design-oriented artwork (some of which I have applied to textiles, rugs and tiles) is defined by a lavish and expressive use of design elements, abstract shapes, symbols, motifs and patterns.
For my art on wood, I begin developing my ideas by working with either digital or watercolour & gouache studies, moving onto a larger format where I use mixed media on a prepped wood substrate, etching with the pyrograph to create depth, interesting texture and a tactile quality that begs to be touched.
Although I follow a general plan from my initial studies, I like to allow my intuition to guide me in the actual unfolding of the final piece, allowing for any changes along the way, mostly in my choice of colours and adding or removing certain elements and embellishments as I see fit. I like to think of this as my Creative Muse talking to me and guiding me through it because whenever I finish a piece I am sure that some guiding hand was always with me and I know I was not alone in its creation. 
The result is an artwork that, oftentimes, quite theatrical in its presence, evokes joy, wonder and fascination.
My all-time go-to paints for the final artwork are matte acrylics, as I can layer to my heart's content and create the opaque quality I love.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, while my name is Lena Blonsky, Lenochka is the name those closest to me call me and by which I sign my art.
