Lena Blonsky (aka lenochka b), born 23 July 1964, is a Greek-Russian contemporary artist.
Fundamentally self-taught in the arts, Lena honed her knowledge and skills in various arts and crafts while parallel to working as a qualified interior designer.
Mentored by renowned Greek artist Ageliki Tseva, the world of art soon won her over, to which she is now fully focused and dedicated.
A restless and creative soul, Lena's creations are colorful, bold, playful, and at times whimsical with a touch of hippie retro. Lena's skills and experience span the fields of interior design, from which she began, through art and graphic design.
Her designs have been applied to hand knotted rugs,textile and handmade cement tile.
Her primary medium is mixed media on wood to which she adds surface texture and depth with pyrography.
Adorable hand painted animal figurines also feature in her range of work.
