Experienced in acrylic based abstract painting, pencil portrait drawings, photography, and textile design.
Born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Salena grew-up next to the Atlantic Ocean, drawing inspiration and solace from the sea. Through the soul calming colours and flowing designs within the acrylic works to the life-like accuracy of the pencil portraits, the diverse talents of this artist are clearly displayed.
Initially self taught, these foundations were later reinforced while studying at various institutions across the country, developing a flair for subtle, yet unique design.
Working out of her home art studio in Richmond Ontario, she currently divides her time between pencil portraits for clients, designing and developing children’s aprons from various sourced material, and experimenting with different acrylic painting styles.
