About Alena

From the author:

I am an artist that loves too many things!

I've been making art my whole life. Drawing has always been a huge part in my life, since my childhood. Always painting, drawing on a computer, on ceramics, glass. I love making jewelry. 

I am inspired by nature, travel and my family.

There are never enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do. 


In digital painting I like Fantasy style. I like to represent fairies, mermaids and mystical images . I use a tablet Wacoom and Photoshop.


I have been drawing coloring books about 5 years. I have already drawn over 30 coloring books.
