Yellena James

Having stumbled upon Yellena James, a Sarajevo-born American, through my daily blog reading, I was instantly in love. Her use of colour, applied to surreal landscape-like images captured my eye. Upon reading more, I discovered she works primarily with pen & ink and acrylic on wood. I love how the wood in the painted pieces shows through, adding a bit of interesting texture to her beautifull coloured pieces. She also mounts archival prints of her ink drawings and glazes them with a resin finish, which gives them a glassy feel which I adore.
